In another covid scare, Delhi Capitals star fast bowler, Anrich Nortje has tested covid positive. Nortje who reached India from South Africa on April 6th straight from the white ball series vs Pakistan was under mandatory 7-day quarantine which is on the verge of completion . He was tested negative on reaching India but his 2nd covid test has came out positive.
Hence now he will be put under isolation for his cure.
It is a major blow for Delhi Capitals as Nortje has been one of their star performers in the last season with 22 wickets in 16 games and was in prime form in the white ball series vs Pakistan.
With the second wave of covid reaching an all time high on 13 April with 1.85 lac fresh cases in India, these are extremely challenging times for BCCI as the IPL has already kicked off since 9 April under the strictest bio bubbles.
