Delhi Capitals’ match against Punjab Kings will go on as per schedule at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) informed through an official release. NDTV has learnt that two more Delhi Capitals players have tested positive for COVID-19.

The BCCI also announced in its release that Delhi’s next match, which was scheduled to be played at Pune against Rajasthan Royals on April 22, will now be played in Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium.
