Chennai: IPL 2021 is to start from April 9, but before that the world’s richest T20 cricket league has been clouded by Corona. Initially, Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team’s opener Devdutt Padikkal fell into the grip of Corona (Covid 19 positive), but now the star all-rounder of this team, Daniel Samms, has also turned Corona positive.
Big shock to RCB
This is a big setback for Royal Challengers Bangalore before the start of IPL this season. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are scheduled to play their first match on 9 April against five-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians. Daniel Sams was found Kovid-19 positive on Wednesday.
