Revealed! Nortje had a false positive Covid-19 report, joins Delhi Capitals squad

Apr 16, 2021 21:46 IST | By Editorji News Desk

South African fast bowler Anrich Nortje who missed Delhi Capitals' 2nd game in IPL due to a positive report has now tested negative. The 27-year-old has now joined the Delhi Capitals' squad and will be available for selection. The management in a statement revealed that Nortje had a false positive test result which is quite common and has been tested three times after that with each test returning negative. This is the 2nd such instance of a false positive report in IPL after Kolkata Knight Riders' Nitish Rana also tested positive for Covid-19 but was later found to be negative on subsequent testing.
