KKR pacer Prasidh Krishna tests positive for COVID-19: Reports
Five days ago, KKR spinner Varun Chakravarthy and right-arm fast-medium bowler Sandeep Warrier tested positive for coronavirus. As per the reports, Varun Chakravarthy went to a local hospital for shoulder scans and sources say, the spinner might have contracted the virus there.
The virus breached the bio-bubble and spread across four IPL teams as well. CSK’s batting coach Michael Hussey, club’s bowling coach Lakhsmipathy Balaji were also found to be positive for the virus.
Sunrisers Hyderabad wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha also contracted the virus. SRH mentor VVS Laxman also expressed that he was literally shocked as to how Saha got infected.
Earlier, today, New Zealand’s wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert became the third KKR player to contract the virus infection. In a shocking development, another Kolkata Knight Riders’ player tested positive for the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Prasidh Krishna became the fourth KKR player to test positive for coronavirus. As per the latest reports, Prasidh Krishna tested positive in the latest round of testing. The 25-year-old fast bowler who featured in all games for the two-time IPL champions was featured in India’s squad for the WTC Final and the England tour as a reserve player.
“He is down with COVID-19. The results have come in and he tested positive,” ANI quoted a KKR source as saying. Tim Seifert was shifted to Chennai for treatment and it remains to be seen whether KKR pacer Prasidh will also be shifted to Chennai.
Meanwhile, KKR performed badly in this season as they are currently seventh in the points table with only 2 wins and 5 defeats with a poor net run rate of -0.494.
