10 Wankhede Stadium groundstaff have tested positive for COVID-19.
“Yes, it was 8 positive cases yesterday as far as ground-staff are concerned. Today two more positive cases have emerged and all 10 have been sent back home and are isolated,” a senior Mumbai CA official told PTI.
“We are bringing fresh ground-staff from the Mumbai CA ground in Kandivali for preparations. Also, 6 to 7 event management staff hired by BCCI have also tested positive,” he added.
“Even if there is a lockdown, the teams are in bio-bubble and also it’s a closed-door event. So, we are still confident that IPL games in Mumbai will be held as per schedule. But, Hyderabad and Indore are there on stand-by in case the situation goes out of hand,” the office-bearer told PTI.
