Varun Chakraborty came out of the bio bubble with a green pass. They are believed to have been infected during this period.
The 14th season of the Indian Premier League seems to be in the grip of the Corona epidemic. The KKR vs RCB match on Monday has been postponed due to two Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players Varun Chakraborty and Sandeep Warrier coming to Corona positive. The developments so far in the IPL have been largely similar to the last season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). PSL had to be postponed due to 8 people being infected, including 6 players. Since its inception in IPL-2021, 7 players have been infected.
Before Varun and Warrier, Nitish Rana, Akshar Patel, Denier Samms, Enrique Norkhia and Devdutt Padikkal were also positive. However, all of them were positive before the league started and were in isolation at the time.

In the Pakistan Super League, Peshawar Zalmi team coach Darren Sammy and captain Wahab Riaz had gone to meet the team owners in violation of the Bio Secure bubble. Varun Chakraborty of KKR also came out of the bio bubble in the IPL. Varun, however, went for a scan with an official green pass. But he is believed to have got an infection at the same time. The transition occurred to Warrior again. However, the good news is that apart from these two, all the other players of the team are negative.
Even one match was postponed in PSL, later the league had to be stopped.
Just as KKR Vs RCB match has been postponed in IPL, similarly in PSL, a match was initially tried to be postponed. However, it was to no avail and eventually the entire league had to be postponed. It is a matter of discussion that the remaining matches of the IPL should be held at any two venue. There was also a discussion in PSL that all the matches should be held in Lahore. However, this was not possible.
