“A net bowler tested positive today morning during a test. Players have been advised to stay in their rooms,” IPL sources said hours before their Sunday game against Chennai Super Kings . Delhi Capitals are due to take on CSK in the second game of the day at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.

Sources said a further round of testing took place on Sunday morning with all contingent members confined to their rooms. This is the second time during the IPL 2022 that the Delhi team has been forced into solitary confinement.

Earlier in the season, six members of the franchise, including physio Patrick Farhart, all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, guard-beater Tim Seifert and three other non-playing members, tested positive for the virus.

The Capitals’ matches against Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals, originally scheduled in Pune, have also been moved to Mumbai. As per the IPL protocol, Delhi Capitals will have to undergo another round of tests and until then all members will have to be isolated in their rooms.

Meanwhile, DC Toli, the official Delhi capitals fan community, teamed up with Plogman of India Ripu Daman Bevli and Ploggers of India Community to organize a Plog Run with over 50 participants. The collaborative initiative aims to encourage fans across Delhi’s capitals to keep the city clean and embrace a litter-free lifestyle.

Plogging is a combination of jogging and scavenging and has recently grown in popularity as an effective way to maintain fitness while creating a meaningful impact. The joint plogging initiative organized by Delhi Capitals was held in and around the DLF Phase IV Galleria market in Gurgaon, with more than 20 kg of trash collected by the participants.

The activity was spearheaded by Ripu Daman Bevli, also known as India’s Plogman and the pioneer of India’s first eco-fitness movement – Litter Free India, combining Fit India and Swachh Bharat. He has organized over 600 cleanups in over 100 cities across the country, inspiring thousands of Indians to adopt environmentally friendly practices.
