“Difficult times, but I’m happy to report that both Varun and Sandeep are doing well,” KKR CEO Venky Mysore told Star Sports. “We have taken all the precautions that are necessary and have been advised by the medical teams of IPL and KKR and also getting appropriate advice from outside on what the right thing to do is. Sandeep, in particular, is doing fine. No temperature, no other symptoms, and he is feeling good. Varun is still a little under the weather, but better than yesterday and both of them are in good spirits.”
Mumbai Indians are scheduled to take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the next IPL match on Tuesday. However, even that match is in doubt as CSK’s bowling coach L Balaji tested positive for COVID-19.
Balaji was a part of the CSK team dugout on Saturday in the match against MI in Delhi. MI being contacts will likely be asked to quarantine, putting the match in doubt.
