Axar Patel is doing good in quarantine and he will join the team in a couple of days, DC director
Axar Patel is doing better in quarantine and after a few more tests he will be hopefully joining the team in 3-4 days says DC Director.
The 14th edition of IPL 2021 has kicked off on April 9 and it will be a humongous task for BCCI to take things under strict control amid a spike in Covid-19 cases in the country.
Before the start of IPL, DC all-rounder Axar Patel had caught the virus and was sent to quarantine immediately. As the second match of IPL is on the way between DC and CSK, the DC director Mustafa Ghouse gave an update about the health of Axar.
He said that the all-rounder is doing fine in quarantine and will be joining the squad very soon. The 27-year-old had checked into the DC team hotel with a negative Covid-19 result but tested positive in the second round of the testing.
The director also added that several tests will be done further to check how quickly the all-rounder is getting recovery.
“Ya, Axar is better. Saturday will be day 10 of his quarantine process. Hopefully 3-4 more days, a couple of negative tests and he will be ready to join the team. We are running tests on him over the next few days to know how quickly we can get him back, available for selection. He had checked into the team hotel in Mumbai on March 28 with a negative report. His report from the 2nd COVID test came positive. He is in isolation at a designated medical care facility,”Ghouse stated as quoted by Sports Today.
‘Update of Shreyas Iyer’s recovery’
The DC director also gave an update about the recovery of DC skipper, Shreyas Iyer. He said that Shreyas is hurt and in constant touch with the DC players.
He got the sensation back after the surgery which is the crucial part of the whole process. He is going through medical care under good hands and is expected to return in action soon.
“Shreyas is better. He has got sensation back in his hand which is the most important factor after the surgery. He is gutted that he is not part of the team. He is in constant touch with the boys and Ricky. All we have to do now is make sure that he is on the path of recovery and getting back to playing at the level he has been before,”Ghouse concluded.
