14 Apr 2021
Left-arm fast bowler Daniel Sams is out of the quarantine and has joined the RCB bio-bubble, the franchise confirmed on Saturday ahead of their match against Sunrisers Hyderabad which is slated to take place on Sunday in Chennai.
“Daniel Sams is out of quarantine and has joined the RCB bio-bubble today with two consecutive negative reports for COVID-19,” RCB tweeted.
The RCB medical team had been in constant touch with Sams and had declared him fit to join the team. “RCB medical team was in constant touch with Sams and has declared him fit to join the team after adhering to all the BCCI protocols,” the tweet further read.
Sams was one of the two players apart from Harshal Patel who had been traded from Delhi Capitals earlier before the mini auctions that took place in February in Chennai.
The left-arm pacer had tested positive for COVID-19. Sams had arrived in India on April 3 and had a negative report for the disease but the test conducted on April 7 came out to be positive. "His report from the second test on 7th April came positive. Sams is currently asymptomatic and he is currently in isolation at a designated medical facility," the RCB said then.
The pacer had earlier played for Delhi Capitals in the previous edition of the IPL but failed to leave an impact. In three matches that Sams played, he didn’t pick up any wickets. Though, the left-arm fast bowler has been in decent touch in the recent past and has been picking up wickets consistently.
