Tuesday, 04 May 2021 - 12:09

Five Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) ground staff have tested positive for COVID-19.

The staff members have been isolated. DDCA's Arun Jaitley Stadium is set to host matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 until May 8.

However, Rohan Jaitley, DDCA president, said that none of the staff that who tested positive were on duty. This development comes on the same day that two players from Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier also tested positive for the deadly virus. Delhi is scheduled to host four more IPL matches this season, including the next two games of the tournament.
