Despite SRH pacer T Natarajan testing positive for COVID-19 during a scheduled RT-PCR test, the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 match between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Delhi Capitals (DC) will go ahead as scheduled. The player has been estranged from the rest of the team. Currently, he is symptom-free.

According to an IPL Media Advisory, the medical staff has identified six of the player's close friends, all of whom have been placed in isolation:

1. Vijay Shankar - Player

2. Vijay Kumar - Team Manager

3. Shyam Sundar J - Physiotherapist

4. Anjana Vannan - Doctor

5. Tushar Khedkar - Logistics Manager

6. Periyasamy Ganesan - Net Bowler

At 5 a.m. local time on Wednesday, the whole Sunrisers contingent, including close contacts, underwent RT-PCR testing, which came back negative, according to the statement.

This is the first COVID-19 worry for the IPL 2021's second leg, which commenced on Sunday following a COVID-19 breakout in numerous squads in May. So far in the second leg, three matches have been played.


The Twenty20 event was called off on May 4 after numerous players tested positive for coronavirus.

The announcement follows Team India's withdrawal from the England tour. The fifth Test between England and India was postponed because the tourists were unable to field a team due to concerns about a surge in Covid-19 cases in their camp.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) first stated that India had forfeited the Test, but this was later clarified.

The ICC will now decide the results of the match and the series result. India led the five-Test series 2-1 going into the final match at Old Trafford.
