Delhi Capitals all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has tested positive for Covid-19 as per his second RT-PCR result, according to multiple media reports. It has been said that Marsh returned positive with a CT value of 17 and could be hospitalized. 

Four members of the Delhi Capitals bio-bubble who were in close contact with Mash will be isolated. The development comes after the capital franchise’s physio Patrick Farhat had tested positive for Covid-19. 

However, all the other members of the Delhi Capitals set-up, have returned negative results. But a call on their next match against Punjab Kings on Wednesday in Pune will be taken according to the situation by the BCCI. 

The players will be under quarantine in their rooms with door-to-door Covid-19 tests scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, as a part of the precautionary measures. 

The franchise were supposed to depart for Pune, earlier today, but have been stranded due to the crisis-hit situation.

Mitchell Marsh was recovering from an injury 

Marsh had joined the Delhi Capitals camp to continue recovery from the low-grade hip flexor injury he sustained in Lahore. His recovery remains a major concern for Delhi Capitals as he was one of the seven overseas players picked up by the franchise for IPL 2022.

However, if Marsh fails to recover in the ongoing season, it will deplete Delhi Capitals’ overseas players’ resources. Marsh and Australia opener David Warner originally expected to join the squad from April 6.

“Being able to focus on my recovery without the travel and isolation break is the best approach. I am disappointed to miss the Pakistan series but look forward to re-joining the Australian squad for our next tour,” Marsh said in a Cricket Australia statement.

Marsh had undergone scans which revealed his left-hip injury that he had sustained during fielding drills.
