Due to a high fever, Prithvi Shaw was brought to the hospital. The cause of fever, on the other hand, is unknown. Shaw broke the news on Instagram, where he also said the same.
In DC’s most recent match against SRH, Shaw was dropped from the playing eleven. Shaw scored 259 runs at an average of 28.78 in nine matches this season.
“Admitted in hospital and recovering from fever. Thank you for all your good wishes, will be back in action soon,” he wrote, alongside the picture.
Shaw’s hospitalisation was revealed in the wake of a COVID-19 threat at the DC camp. Six members of the DC camp, including wicket-keeper batsman Tim Seifert, all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, and team physio Patrick Farhart, tested positive for the virus a few weeks ago.
They were given another scare on Sunday morning before the huge CSK match when a team net bowler tested positive. The player has been placed in mandatory isolation with his roommate. The match, however, will go on as planned, with all team members allegedly testing negative.
