Monday’s IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Ahmedabad has been postponed after two KKR players — Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier — tested positive for COVID-19,

The match will be rescheduled sometime later during the tournament, which is scheduled to conclude on May 30.

Although there is no official word from the BCCI yet, it is learnt that leg-spinner Chakravarthy and pacer Warrier, both 30, are the players who have been infected by the virus.

Of the two, Warrier has not yet made the playing XI in any of the seven matches KKR have played.

“Two members of the contingent have tested positive for COVID but we are waiting for their second test reports to avoid the false positive scenario that happened with Anrich Nortje of Delhi Capitals earlier,” the source said on conditions of anonymity.

KKR last played on April 29 against Delhi Capitals in Ahmedabad and the development is bound to trigger some anxiety in the league, which had been going along smoothly so far.
