The DC opener Prithvi Shaw has an injury concern, so was ruled out of the match between DC and SRH in IPL 2022.
However, the assistant coach of the Capitals, has cleared the air that he doesn’t have COVID-19 as reported.
When former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar jokingly asked Watson, ‘Is Prithvi suffering from ‘Umran Malik’ fever?, the veteran refused to reveal the nature of his injury.
“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.”
Chasing 208 runs to win, the Sunrisers Hyderabad managed 186/8, losing the game by 21 runs.
