IPL 2021: RCB suffers a major setback, Daniel Sams also in grip of corona after Padikkal

New Delhi: IPL royal challengers Bangalore (RCB) has suffered another major setback before the beginning of IPL 2021. RCB player Daniel Sams has been found corona positive. Daniel Sams is the second player after RCB's opening batsman Devdutt Padikkal to fall victim to corona. They have been placed in isolation after being corona positive.

RCB tweeted from his official Twitter account that Daniel Sams was infected with corona. He was earlier examined when he reached the hotel. During this time his report came negative. This is considered a big blow for RCB as Sams will no longer be able to play in the opening several matches. Daniel Sams has played four T20 matches for Australia. He has played three IPL matches for the Delhi Capitals. Sams was released by Delhi Capitals this year after which RCB bought him at auction.

The IPL begins on April 9. The first match will be played between Mumbai and Bangalore (MI Vs RCB). The first match will begin at 7.30 pm. While Rohit Sharma will take charge of the team for Mumbai, RCB will take the field under Virat Kohli.
