IPL 2021: DC's Amit Mishra and CSK's batting coach Michael Hussey test positive for COVID-19

New Delhi: Delhi Capitals leg-spinner Amit Mishra was tested positive on Tuesday, confirmed the IPL team on Twitter.

Mishra has been moved to a designated medical care facility, as per BCCI and IPL guidelines, DC added.

"The Delhi Capitals medical team is in constant touch with Mishra, and ensuring his safety and well-being. We wish him a speedy recovery," DC tweeted.

Chennai Super Kings batting coach Michael Hussey is reported to have tested positive for COVID-19 as well, a day after the IPL team's bowling coach L Balaji returned positive for the dreaded virus.

This was confirmed by Indian Premier League sources hours after the 14th edition of the lucrative T20 league was indefinitely suspended due to a COVID-19 outbreak in its bio-bubble.

Hussey's test reports came on Tuesday.

"Hussey was tested and his sample came positive. We sent it for retesting but that has also come positive," an IPL source told PTI.

On Monday, CSK bowling coach Balaji along with Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers Sandeep Warrier and Varun Chakravarthy had also returned positive results.

The spread of infections had led to postponement of two IPL games earlier.
