Daniel Sams’ Covid-19 report came negative when he first arrived at the team hotel on April 3 but in the second test on April 7, he has tested positive for the virus.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bowling all-rounder Daniel Sams has tested positive for Covid-19. RCB said that Sams’ Covid-19 report came negative when he first received the team hotel on April 3 but within the second test on April 7 his report came positive. The franchise said that it’ll still monitor Sams’ health as per BCCI’s protocols.

“Daniel Sams checked into the team hotel in Chennai on April 3rd, with a negative COVID report on arrival. His report from the 2nd test on 7th April came positive. Sams is currently asymptomatic and he’s currently in isolation at a delegated medical facility,” RCB said in a politician statement.

Sams was traded from Delhi Capitals to RCB before the IPL 2021 auction. The 28-year-old Australian cricketer is the second player from RCB to test positive for the novel coronavirus. The previous week, RCB’s uncapped opener Devdutt Padikkal’s report came positive. The youngster was asymptomatic and has been in quarantine in his Bengaluru residence since. Both the players will be joining the team once their report comes negative.

On April 6, Mumbai Indians (MI) scout and wicketkeeping consultant Kiran More tested positive for the virus. Like others, the former Indian cricketer is asymptomatic as well. On the same day, two members of Wankhede ground staff and a plumber tested positive too. The previous week 10 ground staff members’ report came positive.
