Shocking news suddenly came from the Delhi Capitals team. Mitchell Marsh and several other members of the Capitals have tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently receiving treatment in the hospital. This event is certainly not what they want because Marsh has an obligation to strengthen DC in the IPL 2022 which is currently ongoing.
The Capital’s medical team continues to monitor the Australian player's health condition. Marsh is known to be playing in his first game of the Indian Premier League season on Saturday. "Delhi Capitals all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has tested positive for COVID-19, following which he has been admitted to a hospital. The Delhi Capitals medical team is closely monitoring Marsh's condition ," the team said in a statement.
Other positive cases, also occurred in the Capitals' support staff, and all fall into the "asymptomatic" COVID-19 category. A total of 4 COVID-19 positive cases in the Capitals camp. Meanwhile, all remaining members of the team are currently in isolation and will be tested for COVID-19 regularly. This unexpected turn of events forced Delhi to re-strategize the game for their next match.
DC is scheduled to face the Punjab Kings in their next match on Wednesday in Pune. Besides Marsh, DC Physiotherapist Patrick Farhart was also confirmed positive for COVID-19 last week. However, when DC took on the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the weekend, no other positive cases were reported.
