Two Players are Among the 13 COVID-19 Cases in the IPL”, says the BCCI!

The BCCI on Saturday revealed that two players are corona positive among a total of 13 people who are tested positive for COVID-19. The revelation was made after a dozen of members of the CSK have been infected by the deadly coronavirus in Dubai.

The two players who have been tested positive include a white ball T20 Specialist pacer for India & a top-order India A batsman. However the Board didn’t reveal any names. The tournament starts on September 19 & will be played across all the three cities in the UAE.

“Thirteen personnel have tested positive of which 2 are players. All the affected personnel as well as their close contacts are asymptomatic and have been isolated from other team members. They are being monitored by the IPL Medical Team,” the BCCI press release stated. 

The release stated that a total of 1,988 RT-PCR COVID-19 tests were carried out between August 20 and 28 across all participant groups in the UAE. These include players, support staff, team management BCCI staff, IPL operational team, and hotel and ground transport staff. 

“As per the IPL 2020 Health and Safety Protocols, testing on all participants will be conducted regularly throughout the IPL 2020 Season,” it further stated. 

All positive cases need to go through a 14-day quarantine period following which they will have to return two negative RT-PCR tests before being allowed inside the bio-bubble for the tournament.
