IPL 2021 has been rocked by a Covid-19 scare as reports have emerged that Monday’s clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad has been indefinitely postponed owing to a major Covid scare within the Knight Riders camp. According to multiple sources, several KKR players fell sick on the eve of the RCB encounter and hence the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) have been told that Monday’s game will be indefinitely postponed to a later date.
According to a Sydney Morning Herald report, “several personnel within the KKR camp”, including Australia’s Pat Cummins, are currently unwell and, as a result, the organizers have decided to indefinitely postpone the match that was scheduled to be played at 7.30 PM IST today.
Meanwhile, there have also been rumors that at least two KKR players have tested positive for Covid-19 following a bubble breach in Ahmedabad. Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier are believed to be the infected players, although the news has not been confirmed by the KKR franchise.
