The players of Karnataka returned to the M Chinnaswamy Stadium to have themselves tested for COVID-19.
As the resumption of the games draw closer, over two dozens of Karnataka cricket players have flocked to the M Chinnaswamy Stadium for some medical tests. This was organized by the Board of Control for Cricket in India so that they can ensure the safety of their players and their staff once the games have resumed.
To ensure that safety protocols had been followed, the players had been divided into groups and were assigned a certain time slot for their medical tests. Those which were done included ECG, blood, and respiratory tests.
Among those who attended were Karun Nair, Ravikumar Samarth, Shreyas Gopal, and Ronit More. Based on their statements, all players have been delighted to go back to the stadium after three months and to see some of their teammates even they haven’t started to train yet.
So far, the Karnataka State Cricket Association has reiterated that they are planning to start their season by the first week of July if they will be permitted by the BCCI and the Indian national government. Even though there has been no announced date for the resumption of cricket training, the players will most likely be placed under some fitness and conditioning drills this week.
The KSCA is a cricket organization in India which is affiliated with the BCCI who oversees the national major games as well as the Indian Premier League. To know more about the famous IPL, head over to Betwala.
