Sunrisers Hyderabad wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha and Delhi Capitals spinner Amit Mishra have tested positive for COVID-19, hours before SRH’s scheduled IPL 2021 fixture against Mumbai Indians.
With Amit Mishra (Delhi) Wridhiman (Hyderabad) also testing positive there cannot and should not be a game tonight as well as Hyderabad were scheduled to play Mumbai. If they still want the IPL to go ahead there had to be a break this entire week

The BCCI has already been forced to postpone two IPL matches KKR vs RCB and RR vs CSK. However, with Saha and Mishra also testing positive now, it also jeopardizes more fixtures too.
Apart from the players, two non-playing members of Chennai Super Kings (bowling coach Laxmipathy Balaji and a member of travelling staff) have tested positive too following which the franchise has gone into hard-quarantine.
