The IPL 2021 which was being operated under the Covid-19 bubble has to seek some options now due to the recent events of the corona outbreak inside the teams. First, it was KKR and now CSK has been caught in the wind of Covid-19 cases
It all started with KKR’s Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier being detected as Covid positive and due to this that they have to postpone today’s match between KKR and RCB.
Followed by the incident, CSK’s side also produced three covid positive members namely Chennai Super Kings (CSK) CEO, bowling coach L Balaji and a bus cleaner. So, as an expected decision on their next upcoming match is to be made but the chances are dire that it would be scheduled properly.
In a statement about this, the BCCI mentioned that “Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier were found to be positive in the third round of testing in the last four days. All other team members have tested negative for COVID -19.”
They continued “Both the players have isolated themselves from the rest of the squad. The Medical Team is in continuous touch with the duo and is monitoring their health. Meanwhile, the Kolkata Knight Riders have now moved towards a daily testing routine to identify any other possible cases and treat them at the earliest,”
Now, any match that is postponed for now has to be scheduled in the period before the 30th of May, which are the dates for the finals. But what if there will be more to come and this is just the starting then what happens is the real question.
Will this year’s IPL be postponed completelybecause of Covid, canceled, or go on as it is?
Well! As of now, doctors are keeping a check on all the individuals that have been detected, and starting from the vehicles used to hotel rooms all are getting sanitized to restore the bubble as soon as possible.
