South Africa cricketers in danger of coronavirus
South Africa cricketers were staying at the same hotel in Lucknow with Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor, who was attacked by coronavirus. The ‘baby-doll’ nicknamed Kanika has been diagnosed with coronavirus on Friday.
It was reported that Kanika had organized a party with close friends at a five-star hotel back in London from Lucknow on March 15. In that party, there were political figures, high officials. South Africa cricketers were also at that hotel.
The first of a three-match ODI series between India and South Africa was held in Dharamshala in March 12. Which became abandoned due to rain. The second and third matches were in Lucknow (March 15) and Kolkata (March 18), respectively. But because of the panic over the coronavirus, the board of two countries decided to cancel the next two ODIs of the series.
Proteas cricketers were in Lucknow from March 13. They came to Kolkata on March 16. From here, they returned to Dubai and returned home.
On the list, it was clear that they were in the same hotel with Kanika Kapoor.
That Taj Hotel in Lucknow is now closed. No reason was given for the closure, though. The hotel authorities did not make a formal statement.
