Dubai/IBNS: Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli is back into the nets to practice for the delayed 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL).

Kohli, who leads IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore, was seen with his teammates on field.

He shared some images on his Instagram profile with a caption that reads, "Been 5 months since the last time I stepped onto the field. Felt like 6 days when I got into the nets. Great first session with the boys."

The IPL, which has been delayed due to Covid-19, has moved out of India due to Covid-19 scare.

The T20 tournament, which normally takes place between March and June, will begin in UAE from Sept 19.

Meanwhile, at least 10 members including a player of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings have tested positive for Coronavirus in Dubai.

The positive results came out after the Super Kings squad and support staff were tested on Thursday.

As per the IPL's Covid-19 protocols, all teams had to undergo a test at the airport upon landing in the UAE followed by three tests on days 1, 3 and 5 during the mandatory six-day quarantine at the team hotel. The positive results of the Super Kings contingent were from the third test that were conducted on day 5, reported a news portal.

The team's quarantine period in the team hotel has been extended.
