The 14nth season of the IPL has been postponed due to Corona. The Sun Risers team from Hyderabad has been sent into isolation. Some field staff in Delhi stadium were also tested positive for Corona.

On a day when two of its non-playing members, including a coach, tested positive for Covid-19, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) informed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that they won’t play their next match against Rajasthan Royals in New Delhi on Wednesday.

It was learnt that CSK informed the BCCI that they could step back on the field only once all players who came in contact with the two people who tested positive cleared three tests over a six-day period, as per Covid-19 standard operating procedure (SOP) of the IPL.

The rising numbers of Covid positives within the IPL bio bubble have led to the suspension of the season mid-way.
