Following a host of Covid-19 cases detected in the bio-secure bubbles, the BCCI have promptly appointed Bubble Integrity Managers for each franchise, broadcast, and operation teams to report any breaches. There have been a host of cases reported in the bio-bubble created in Mumbai. Six members of the operations team, 10 ground staff members at the Wankhede Stadium, DC all-rounder Axar Patel, KKR batsman Nitish Rana and a member of the CSK touring party have all tested positive for the coronavirus so far. According to reports, RCB's Devdutt Padikkal is the latest player to get infected

With Covid-19 cases rising in the country, staying ahead of the curve has become a challenge and thus the BCCI have decided to appoint Bubble Integrity Managers for each franchise and also for broadcast and operation teams. Cricbuzz reported that the managers will be traveling with their assigned contingent to the venues and will be staying in the same bubble till the conclusion of the IPL 2021. 

"Their job will be to report any Bio-secure Environment protocol breaches by members of the franchise team to the BCCI Chief Medical Officer," a BCCI official said.

The Indian board have formed as many as 12 bubbles - 8 for franchises, 2 for match officials and match management teams, and 2 more for broadcast commentators and crew - for the 2021 IPL.
