Indian Skipper Virat Kohli has warned Indian Premier League (IPL) players of serious “repercussions” for the tournament if they breach coronavirus precautionary rules.
In his recent statement, Kohli the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Captain said: “One mistake from us could literally spoil the whole tournament.”
With all eight teams now in quarantine in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ahead of the September 19 start, Kohli made the warning in a virtual meeting with players which was posted online by the Bangalore team.
The IPL, originally scheduled to start in March, has been moved from India because of the raging spread of the dread virus across India, now the third worst COVID-19 hit in the world.
All teams are in quarantine in Dubai hotels for six days, during which each player will undergo three coronavirus tests.
