India and Delhi Capitals (DC) all-rounder Axar Patel has tested positive for Covid-19, less than a week from the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. DC kickstart their IPL 2020 campaign against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in Mumbai on April 10. Axar is the second player after Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) batsman Nitish Rana to positive for the coronavirus, but was allowed to train with the squad a few days later when he produced a negative report.

"Delhi Capitals all-rounder Axar Patel has tested positive for COVID-19. He had checked into the team hotel in Mumbai on March 28, 2021, with a negative report. His report from the second COVID test, came positive," the franchise said in a statement.

"He is currently in isolation at a designated medical care facility. The Delhi Capitals medical team is in constant touch with Axar and ensuring his safety and well-being. We wish him a speedy recovery."

As a result, Axar might miss at least the first game for DC as he has to isolate himself outside the bio-secure bubble for 10 days. "During the 10-day isolation, the individual must rest and avoid any exercises. The team doctor should regularly monitor the case. If symptoms worsen during the course of isolation, the individual must be hospitalised immediately," the SOP states.

Just recently, eight groundstaff from the Wankhede Stadium had tested positive for Covid-19. Other than DC, Mumbai Indians (MI), CSK Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) have set up their bases in Mumbai.  

Maharashtra recorded 47,827 Covid-19 cases on Friday (April 2) out of which Mumbai registered 8,832 cases, which is the highest single-day spike.
