The Delhi Capitals (DC) camp on Friday suffered another massive blow after a family member of head coach Ricky Ponting has tested positive for Covid-19. The family has now been moved into an isolation facility and is being well taken care of.
Ponting himself has been tested negative twice later. However, in the best interest of the team, the management and medical team have decided that he will remain in isolation for five days, as he was a close contact. The DC head coach will, therefore, not be present at the ground for the game against Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 22. The franchise has also requested for Ponting and his family’s privacy to be respected in the current scenario.
The condition of all individuals in the bubble who have tested positive so far is being closely monitored. The team looks forward to everyone’s speedy recovery.
