In the 14th season of the IPL 2021, Corona (Covid-19) has disrupted. The report of two KKR players has come positive. After this, KKR has to postpone the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Monday evening.
Apart from this, three members of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have been found infected. After this, questions are being raised on the bio bubble of IPL. Now questions are also being raised on the match between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday.
According to the news of Cricbuzz, the report of Chennai Super Kings bowling Laxmipathy Balaji has come positive. On May 1, the Chennai and Mumbai Indians matches were played in Delhi. Here he met members of Mumbai Indians.
In such a situation, under the protocol, the players of Mumbai will also have to be tested and they will be able to play the match only after two reports of all are negative. However, so far no statement has been received from the board. Meanwhile, the BCCI said that it is monitoring the entire situation.
29 out of 60 matches of IPL have been played. That means half the tournament is over. There are 31 matches to be played. These four matches are to be played in Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad.
Talking about the remaining matches, a maximum of 10–10 matches are to be held in Kolkata and Bangalore. Apart from this, 7 matches will be held in Ahmedabad and 4 in Delhi. Still, more than 3 lakh cases of Covid-19 are coming to the country every day.
The T20 World Cup is to be held in India in October-November this year. If the league is postponed due to Covid-19, then the World Cup event will also be questioned. Therefore, right now BCCI is taking steps carefully. But Corona’s case in the two teams has raised concerns. Adam Jampa of Australia had already said that he is afraid of the big bubble in India. Here we needed to be extra careful.
