The groundstaff at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium tested positive for coronavirus, creating fears ahead of the big tournament.
With less than a week before the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, broadcasters are worried about the coronavirus situation in Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium. The stadium’s groundskeepers also tested positive for COVID-19, raising fears that they may have worked with other groundskeepers. Only replacing those who have tested positive for Covid might not be enough, and the only way to resolve the problem is to bench all groundstaff members, broadcasters have told the IPLprediction team.
In IPL 2021, the Wankhede stadium will host ten games.
On April 10, last year’s finalists Delhi Capitals will face three-time champions Chennai Super Kings in the first match at the Wankhede.
The IPL 2021 season begins on April 9 in Chennai, with the defending champions Mumbai Indians taking on Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore.
After being relocated to the UAE for the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, the IPL is returning to India this year.
The IPL 2020 tournament was held in Dubai, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi, with Mumbai Indians winning a record-tying fifth title.
