Mumbai: The IPL match between COVID-hit Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings was on Tuesday shifted to Mumbai from Pune following a virus outbreak in the Risabh Pant-led team.
In a statement on Tuesday, the BCCI said it has moved the game to Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai to ensure no COVID infection goes undetected in the bio-bubble.
Five members of Delhi Capitals, including one player in Mitchell Marsh have tested positive. Others down with the virus are physio Patrick Farhart, sports massage therapist Chetan Kumar, team doctor Abhijit Salvi and social media content team member Akash Mane.
“The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Tuesday announced a change of venue for Match No. 32 Delhi Capital versus Punjab Kings from MCA Stadium, Pune to Brabourne CCI scheduled on April 20th, 2022, to avoid any further incident due to any undetected case during a long-distance bus journey in a closed environment,” said the BCCI in a statement.
