COVID hits IPL: KKR-RCB match rescheduled after two positive reports

IPL 2021: Kolkata Knight Riders were scheduled to play against Royal Challengers Bangalore today in Ahmedabad.

The Indian Premier League (IPL2021) has been rocked by another Covid-19 case as the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players and staff have decided to isolate themself after multiple players fell ill ahead of their game against RCB today (Monday) in Ahmedabad.

According to The Age and the Herald, several players within the KKR camp – which features Australian superstar Pat Cummins – are unwell, and their match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, scheduled for Monday night is in doubt.

Although The Age and the Herald reported Cummins and others have illnesses, sources are disputing this information. BCCI is yet to reveal the identity of the player who is ill.

The T20 tournament, which has crossed the halfway mark, is being played behind closed doors with teams staying in biosecure bubbles. The KKR vs RCB match will be played some time later during the tournament, which is scheduled to conclude on May 30.

KKR last played on April 29 against Delhi Capitals in Ahmedabad.

With 29 matches have already been played in the season, Eoin Morgan-led Knight Riders were scheduled to face Virat Kohli’s RCB in the 30th match on May 3.
