According to reports, the IPL game between Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings on Wednesday evening has been put under serious doubt after wicket-keeper batter Seifert tested positive for COVID-19.
The New Zealand player is the second overseas cricketer in the Capitals team after Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh to get the infection, taking the overall count of positive cases to six.
The positive case emerged after a fresh round of testing conducted on Wednesday morning, according to a BCCI source.
"As far as we know, Tim Seifert of New Zealand has tested positive," said a BCCI source.
"We were tested in the morning and we will be tested again shortly. We continue to be isolated," said a player on the condition of anonymity.
The BCCI was on Tuesday forced to shift the game to Mumbai from Pune following a COVID outbreak in the Delhi camp.
