New Delhi. The effect of Corona is starting to be seen in IPL 2022. After 5 cases of corona infection were reported in Delhi Capitals, the venue of the match between Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals on Wednesday has been changed. Now this match will be held at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai instead of MCA Stadium in Pune. BCCI has given official information about this. The BCCI has taken this decision in view of no more new cases of corona coming in the bio-bubble of IPL.
According to the report of ESPNcricinfo, the IPL has taken this decision in a meeting held today after the Corona case surfaced in the Delhi Capitals team. Earlier, on Monday, Delhi Capitals issued a statement confirming that Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was admitted to the hospital after being found corona infected apart from the support staff members. However, the bio-bubble of IPL remained safe. So the Governing Council decided that the team should not travel anywhere. For this reason, the team of Delhi Capitals has not yet reached Pune and all the players are quarantined in Mumbai itself. In such a situation, Punjab Kings can be called Mumbai.
The Delhi Capitals players have had a corona test on Tuesday morning. Its not reported yet. Only after being found negative in this report will the players be able to enter the match against Punjab Kings. The Delhi team has been asked to train in Mumbai itself.
