Shaw had also missed the Delhi Capitals’ last clash in the IPL 2022 against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), which saw DC defeating SRH by a decent margin, and Mandeep Singh opening the innings with David Warner, who slammed 92* against his former franchise.

After the match in a conversation with the commentators, Delhi Capitals (DC) assistant coach Shane Watson had given some information on why Prithvi Shaw had missed the game without going into the details.

He had said: “Hahaha. He would miss the next match, but he doesn’t have COVID-19 for sure. It was an important win for us as we needed two points and David Warner played his part in the game. The players will feel confident ahead of the remaining games.”

After that match, it was reported that a net bowler from DC camp had tested positive for COVID-19 and the entire contingent was asked to isolate themselves in their hotel rooms and their match against Chennai Super Kings was under doubt.

This led to many speculations about Prithvi Shaw as well, who recently posted an update on his Instagram story. Shaw himself has revealed that he is in hospital with a fever and told his fans that he’ll be back in action soon.
