IPL 2022: DC All-Rounder Mitchell Marsh To Be Hospitalised After Testing Positive For Covid-19 - Reports

Delhi Capitals (DC) all-rounder, Mitchell Marsh will be hospitalized after he returned a positive result in his covid-19 test with a CT value of 17. The Aussie had returned a positive result in the Rapid Antigen Test but in the subsequent RT-PCR test, Marsh tested negative.

Unfortunately, the second round of the RT-PCR tests spelled bad news for Marsh as he returned a positive result once again. The CT value is also quite high meaning the 31-year-old will need to be hospitalized immediately as reported by Indiatoday.

Along with Marsh, a member of the DC social media team, a doctor, and 3 members of the hotel staff also tested positive for the virus. The franchise will now wait for further tests before taking a final call on the game against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Wednesday.
