across teams over the past couple of days.
The move was confirmed by the IPL chairman Brijesh Patel who said the decision was taken for the safety of all the stakeholders.
The development took place after the match
between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indian—which was scheduled to be played
on Tuesday—was postponed following news that wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman
Saha was also positive for the pathogen.

postponed as on Monday, the fixture between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers
Bangalore was also postponed after two players tested positive.

Super Kings — bowling coach Laxmipati Balaji, chief executive officer K
Viswanathan and a bus cleaner – were also tested positive for Covid-19.
