The Star Sports crew of fourteen members staying in bio-bubble at the four-season hotel tests positive for coronavirus. This crew is responsible for producing the world feed from 9th April on behalf of BCCI.

This list includes the cameraman, producer, directors, video editors and EVS operators (people who provide slow and ultra-motion replays and instant graphics). 

As per the reports by Outlook India, the BCCI is in charge of creating the bio-bubbles for the teams and the staff.

As the cases in the state of Maharashtra are rising at an alarming rate, the ground crew from the cricket stadium tested positive along with few players and a few IPL managers.

Recently, the state government announced partial lockdowns in the state to restrict the spread of the virus. At that time, everyone's eye is the IPL but, the government did not place any restrictions on the matches. With this decision, BCCI felt some relief for few hours.

That relief is spoiled with this news but, still, the BCCI is confident that the IPL will be played as planned. 

Star Sports is also managing another crew securely in bio-bubble at the JW Marriot hotel. These guys are responsible only for the customized feed for regional language. 

Sourav Ganguly said, “Once you are in a bubble nothing happens. Even in the UAE last season, there were a few such incidents in the lead-up to the event but once the tournament started everything was fine."

The Indian Premier League will be played without any changes, as per the assurance from the government and with the confidence of BCCI.
