Sunrisers Hyderabad
bowler Thangarasu Natarajan has become the first Indian Premier League player
to test positive for coronavirus but the team’s match on Wednesday will go
ahead, organisers said.

Natarajan and six close contacts, including all-rounder
Vijay Shankar, have been isolated from the team to take on Delhi Capitals in
Dubai.

Hyderabad named the contacts, who returned negative tests on
Wednesday morning, and said Natarajan is “asymptomatic”.

Hyderabad, led by New Zealand’s Kane Williamson, are placed
bottom of the eight-team table and need to win all remaining games to keep
their play-off hopes alive.

The tournament resumed Sunday after it was halted in May
because of a devastating surge in pandemic deaths in India, prompting foreign
players to rush home.

Many have not come back including England’s Ben Stokes, who
had been with Rajasthan Royals, and Australian Pat Cummins of Kolkata Knight
Riders.
