Delhi Capitals' leg-spinner Amit Mishra tested positive for coronavirus, the franchise confirmed on Twitter.

Mishra has been moved to a designated medical care facility, as per BCCI and IPL guidelines, they added.

"The Delhi Capitals medical team is in constant touch with Mishra, and ensuring his safety and well-being. We wish him a speedy recovery," DC tweeted.

Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings' batting coach Michael Hussey has also reportedly tested positive for Covid-19. A day before Hussey's test came positive, CSK's bowling coach L Balaji returned positive test.

"Hussey was tested and his sample came positive. We sent it for retesting but that has also come positive," an IPL source told PTI.

The aforementioned cases were reported after the news of the postponement of the Indian Premier League (IPL). India is battling a massive surge in coronavirus cases.

The country's virus caseload surged past 20 million with more than 350,000 new cases reported on Tuesday while it recorded 3,449 new deaths, higher than anywhere else.

But the number of new infections fell from the peak of 402,000 last week, giving some cause for optimism that the worst of the devastating wave may have passed.
