Australian all-rounder Mitch Marsh’s Indian Premier League (IPL) team, the Delhi Capitals, tweeted that he has been admitted to hospital in India after testing positive for COVID-19.
Marsh is one of the players in the Australian team’s “bio bubble” to test positive while others are asymptomatic.
He was found infected during a Rapid Antigen Test. Marsh has complained of a headache and slight fever, so the Delhi Capitals decided to have an RT-PCR Test of all its members, out of which Marsh’s result returned positive.
Delhi Capitals medical team is closely monitoring Marsh’s condition and will provide regular updates.
Other cricketers, part of the ‘bio-bubble’, are currently in isolation in their respective rooms.
Marsh will need to isolate for at least a week. This means that he will miss at least the games against the Punjab Kings on Wednesday and Saturday’s clash with the Rajasthan Royals.
He last played a Test match in 2019 but remains a key part of Australia’s white-ball teams and starred in last year’s T20 World Cup triumph.
Marsh is playing alongside fellow Australia T20 player David Warner, under the tutelage of Ricky Ponting.
