Royal Challengers Bangalore team on this Sunday, 4th April, confirmed that Devdutt Padikkal, their opener had tested Covid positive and is at his home in the city of Bengaluru under mandatory quarantine. The left-handed batsman had tested covid positive on the 22nd of March, 2021, as informed by the franchise. "He has been in mandatory quarantine at his residence in Bengaluru since then. He will be fit to join the RCB bio-bubble once his RT-PCR tests are negative. RCB Medical team is in touch with Devdutt ensuring his safety and well-being. Devdutt is feeling well and we can't wait to have him join the squad for the IPL season ahead," said the franchise in this context.

“RCB Medical team is in touch with Devdutt ensuring his safety and well-being. Devdutt is feeling well and we can’t wait to have him join the squad for the IPL season ahead,” the franchise further informed through another statement.

It is assumed that Devdutt Padikkal might miss up to two matches for the RCB team.

Missing the very capable batsman Padikkal, even for a brief period of time, will indeed be a massive blow for the RCBs. Padikkal had been their highest score-drawer the previous season with as many as 473 runs from the 15 matches. Also, he has been in very good form in the domestic gaming circuit of the country.

The BCCI is presently engaged in crisis management after covid scare which witnessed Axar Patel, one of the players of the Delhi Capitals team and the ten ground staffs at the Wankhede stadium testing covid positive.

Although Hyderabad and Indore have been kept as standby for hosting the IPL opener, the Wankhede Stadium of Mumbai is all likely to get the IPL game as decided. A senior official of the BCCI, said in this context, ‘its too late to shift the match.’

“It’s too late to move the matches from Mumbai now. The members of the organizing team have been in separate bubble. The players are in strict bubble. BCCI had Hyderabad as a back-up but it’s very difficult to move it in a week,” stated the official clearly

In the past, in a massive blow to the team of the Delhi Capitals, Axar Patel, the notable spinner, has tested covid positive. Earlier it was told that Nitish Rana too was Covid positive but later the KKR team clarified the matter saying that Rana was found to be negative later. The Indian Premier League starts on the 9th of April with the Delhi Capitals playing their first IPL game the very next day; i.e. 10th of April.

Nitish Rana, the KKR player has clarified that he is covid negative. His statement has cleared the rumors about him being covid positive and that he has been given orders for quarantining himself. His team was prompt in presenting their statement in this context: ”Nitish Rana had checked into the KKR team hotel in Mumbai, on March 21, 2021 with a negative COVID report which was done on March 19, 2021. As per IPL protocol, he was tested on March 22, during his quarantine and the report showed that he was positive.”
