The KKR vs RCB match was postponed on Monday as two Knight stars were positive. After that, it is heard that the deadly virus has also entered the camp of Chennai Super Kings. While the cricketers were safe, the franchise’s CEO, bowling coach and a bus worker were attacked. As a result, the team canceled the practice. Dhoni did not want to play on Wednesday in a worrying situation. Because five ground staff are also infected in the stadium where the game is played. Overall, the BCCI was under a lot of pressure. So the rest of the tournament was planned to be held in one city to prevent infection. Permission was also sought from the Maharashtra government in this regard. The tournament was supposed to be shifted to Mumbai as soon as the green signal came from them. But in the meantime bad news comes. Riddhiman Sahao affected by corona.
Bengal wicket-keeper had fever since May 2. That is why he was not on the field in the last match of Hyderabad. His team was scheduled to play against Mumbai today. Before that, Riddhi’s test is to follow the rules. The first two reports are negative. But in the third report, it is known that the killing virus has settled in his body. In such a situation, the IPL is first suspended indefinitely. But for now, it is known that the IPL has been postponed like this season. In that case, it is not yet clear how the best team of the tournament will be selected, or whether the rest of the IPL matches will be played later.
