There is less than a week left for the 14th season of IPL to start and before that bad news has come for RCB.
It seems difficult to play Devdatt Paddikal in the first match of the tournament.
Even before the 14th season of the Indian Premier League starts, many franchises have been hit by the Coronavirus. First the news of Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Nitish Rana got infected, then Akshar Patel of Delhi Capitals has also been found to be Corona positive. After this, Royal Challengers Bangalore opener Devadatta Padikkal also came in its JD. Now another bad news is coming for RCB’s captain Virat Kohli. According to the report, RCB opener Devdutt Padikkal is finding it difficult to play against Mumbai Indians in the inaugural match played on April 9 of the 14th season of IPL (IPL 2021). Coronavirus-infected pedicels are quarantined at their home in Bangalore.
According to the report, left-handed batsman Devadatta Padikkal may remain out of RCB’s first match. The second match of RCB is to be played on 14 April. Padikkal was found to be Corona positive on 22 March and has been in Quarantine ever since. However, the news was confirmed by the franchise on 4 April. According to RCB management, Padikkal is still at his home in Bangalore. The Karnataka batsman did not fly to Chennai after being found corona infected and has been at home ever since. Devadatta Padikkal created history by scoring four consecutive centuries in the recently concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy.
Last season, Padikkal scored 473 runs.
Padikkal will have a test again on Tuesday or Wednesday and only after the Corona Report comes to negative, they will get a chance to join the Bio Secure Bubble in Chennai. According to the franchisee, our medical team is in touch with Padikkal. After coming to the RT PCR test negative, they will be allowed to join the bio bubble. If Paddikal does not play the first match, then it will be a big shock for the team. In the last season of IPL, Devdutt had scored the most 473 runs for the team in 15 matches. He is the second uncapped player to score the most runs in the debut season of IPL. If Padikkal does not play in this match, then New Zealand young batsman Alan Finn can be given the responsibility of opening.
