Everyone remembers how the COVID-19 virus stopped the whole world. With several lockdowns given by the government, the world was still functioning in a staggered manner. Even after the lockdown lifted, the restrictions were still in place. Sporting events resumed with no physical attendance from the audience. Everything shifted online. Just the players of the sports were on the field and inside a bio-bubble to follow the COVID protocols put in place by the government.

People got some form of entertainment back, but there were still risks.

Players were still testing positive for COVID. Furthermore, this put other players at risk inside the bio-bubble as well. The lockdown and restrictions were recently taken back, and the world kind of went back to normal. But things aren’t always as they seem.

Specifically talking about the Indian Premier League, the 2020 edition, it was stopped halfway due to the COVID outbreak. But, three months later, we saw the tournament shifting to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the remaining matches.

This year (2022), the restrictions are finally lifted, and the waves of the outbreak, already passed. The 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League started off like a breeze, with safety protocols in place and the fans back in the stadium. It proved to be quite a sight for the players of every franchise as well as the fans. The fans were happy to be back in the stands, and the players were happy to be playing again in front of an audience.

The 2022 Indian Premier League completed 32 successful match days with a lot of twists and hits for the fans.

The Recent Scare

According to the recent news, it seems like the COVID scare is back to haunt everyone again. With 32 match days completed, the fans and the teams expected a smooth journey. But such is life. Unpredictable.

However, the medical experts say that this scare is not as bad as the others. With most people vaccinated and booster doses provided as well, the situation seems to be resolved. But, with Mitchell Marsh testing positive with a CT value of 17, everyone is in a state of fright right now.

Delhi Capitals Players Test Positive. Tim Seifert, the wicketkeeper-batsman for the Delhi Capitals, tested positive on Wednesday. This further led to the test of everyone on the squad. 

The physiotherapist Patrick Farhart tested positive, and the team’s masseur after that.

All the team members of the Delhi Capitals have gone through two rounds of testing. Furthermore, the authorities are assuring everyone that the safety protocols will be much stricter from now on.


The authorities seem to be taking action in this situation and seem determined to diffuse it quickly. Furthermore, this will ensure that the tournament moves forward smoothly. As for the Delhi squad is concerned, the team has been tested twice, and there is no such risk right now. But they have to be more than cautious about everything from now on.

There are many sports in the world. Some people likes football, and others likes cricket or basketball. But I love to play cricket because it is a game of gentalman. I am a left-handed batsman and a left-arm orthodox bowler. I played an inter-college tournaments. Also, I represented my college cricket team as vice captain. Ms. Dhoni is my idol, and the Chennai Super Kings are my all-time favourite franchise.
