The Kerala-based Warrier’s interaction with Delhi Capitals veteran Amit Mishra led to the veteran being found positive as well, causing ultimately the league’s suspension.

“Yes, Chakravarthy and Sandeep have gone home. They have completed 10 days of mandatory isolation. However, KKR as a franchise will keep monitoring their health,” a BCCI official in know of things told PTI on Monday.

“They will undergo RT-PCR tests in Chennai and Kerala respectively,” he added.

Both Chakravarthy and Warrier did not show any major symptoms for the infection.

However, New Zealander Tim Seifert, another COVID positive KKR recruit, is still in isolation. The IPL was suspended on 4 May.
