Match 30 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers (RCB) which was to be played tonight (May 3) in Ahmedabad has been rescheduled due to Covid-19 related concerns. It is believed that some of the KKR players, including fast bowler Pat Cummins are believed to be in isolation as they were feeling unwell.
Interestingly, Cummins was among the first players from the IPL to donate USD 50,000 to the PM Cares Funds to help India fight against the COvid-19 pandemic. According to PTI, two members the KKR camp have tested positive for Covid-19, it, however, remains unclear as to who those two individuals are.
According to Cricbuzz, the BCCI has communicated to the organisers in Ahmedabad that the game will not take place as scheduled and the new date for the match will be announced in due course.
KKR are currently in seventh position in the IPL 2021 table, having won just two out of their seven games this season so far. RCB, on the other hand, have 10 pints from seven matches and are currently in third position
