“The player has isolated himself from the rest of the squad. He is currently asymptomatic,” the Indian cricket board (BCCI) said in a statement hours before the match.

“The rest of the contingent including the close contacts underwent RT-PCR tests at 5am local time this morning and the test reports are negative,” the BCCI added.

“As a result, tonight’s game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals will go ahead at the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai.”

With India grappling with a surge of coronavirus cases, the eight-team league was suspended near its halfway stage in May after two franchises reported several positive cases.
