The match between KKR vs RCB of IPL’s 14th season has been postponed. Now this game will be played later.
The impact of Covid-19 has been seen in the Indian Premier League. Many Kolkata Knight Riders players have fallen ill. Since then, players and staff have been isolated. After all, questions have also been raised about IPL’s safe bio-bubble. Not only this, the safety of the teams that have played against Kolkata Knight Riders in recent days is also under suspicion.
According to ESPN Cricinfo news, Varun Chakraborty recently exited the IPL biobubble. He went to get a shoulder scan and then maybe he got hit by the virus. Aside from Warrior and Chakraborty, the remaining Kolkata Knight Riders players tested negative.
The press release issued by the IPL states that both players have isolated themselves. The medical team is in contact with both. And at the same time their health is monitored.
Along with this, Kolkata Knight Riders has now decided to screen players on a daily basis so that the potential case can be dealt with as soon as possible. The medical team will test all contacts that came into contact with these two players in the last 48 hours.
Two Kolkata Knight Riders players, Varun Chakraborty and Sandeep Warrier, have turned positive.
This season of the T20 tournament, 29 games have been played. It is being organized in the Bio Secure Environment, in which there are many restrictions, including the prohibition of entry and exit of players.
BCCI Recently Tightened the Biobubble Rules
The Cricket Control Board in India (BCCI) recently introduced stricter bio-bubble rules. Instead of the players’ covid test every five days, the time limit was changed to two days and the IPL was asked to perform the covid test every other day.
Along with this, the BCCI also prohibited players from obtaining food outside the hotel.
RCB at number three and Kolkata at number seven on the table.
The match between KKR vs RCB was to take place in Ahmedabad starting at 07:30 pm, for the second time this season, both teams would go head-to-head. Royal Challengers Bangalore have won five of seven games so far this season and are number three with 10 points.
