Australian all-rounder Daniel Sams joined the Royal Challengers Bangalore bio-bubble on Saturday after coming back with two negative RT-PCR results more than a week after testing positive for COVID-19. The 28-year-old arrived in India on April 3 with a negative COVID-19 report, but tested positive in the second test on April 7 and has been in quarantine since then.
“We are pleased to announce that Royal Challengers Bangalore Daniel Sams joined the RCB bio-bubble on April 17, 2021 with negative reports for COVID-19,” RCB said in a statement.
Daniel Sams is out of quarantine and joined the RCB bio-bubble today with two consecutive negative reports for COVID-19.

“The RCB medical team was in constant contact with Sams to ensure his safety and declared him fit to join the team after all the examinations required under the BCCI protocols.”
Sams, who was traded to RCB this season from the Delhi capitals, is the second player in the franchise to recover from COVID-19.
Opener Devdutt Padikkal, who was RCB’s top scorer last season with 473 points in 15 games, had already recovered from the dreaded illness and joined the team after a negative return.
While Sams missed the first two matches, Padikkal was back in action in RCB’s second IPL match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, which the team won by six points.
RCB leads the points table with two wins and will face Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday in the tournament’s first double header.
