One of the strong teams competing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season, The Delhi Capitals (DC) was hit by six cases of COVID-19. Amidst the ongoing IPL, Australian cricket player Mitchell Marsh and four other DC support staff, tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week. Furthermore, another Capitals player tested positive for COVID-19 again in the latest test conducted on Wednesday, 20 April.
One recent case found was Delhi's wicketkeeper, Tim Seifert, who also tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, this New Zealand cricketer could not compete in the match and had to undergo quarantine and treatment first.
However, despite the six confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Capitals team, they still put in their best performance against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Even though there were players who tested positive, the match went ahead as scheduled.
