Cricket Australia has confirmed that they are “closely monitoring” Marsh’s condition and they are in communication with DC. “The Delhi Capitals have confirmed Mitchell Marsh is in hospital recovering,” the statement read.

“All contracted Australian players are currently on leave and are participating in the IPL with approval from Cricket Australia.

Marsh last played for Australia in a Test match in 2019 but he remains a key part of Australia’s white-ball teams

Delhi are next due to face the Punjab Kings this week. The upcoming fixtures could also be postponed if the situation in DC camps worsens following IPL’s strict measures. It is learnt that the IPL last year was suspended midway through the tournament following the outbreaks of the virus in team camps. The remainder of the tournament was played in UAE, the same host of the whole 2020 edition.
