the sixth such case in the camp. The Indian cricket board will have another round of testing before Delhi Capitals’ game

 BCCI has informed Delhi Capitals that they will be testing players who are scheduled to play Wednesday’s game at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium.

 It is understood that the match will be played with those players whose test reports return negative. The rest of the team and support staff will be tested later.
