Mumbai/UNI: Former India cricketer and Mumbai Indians' talent scout Kiran More has tested positive for COVID-19, the IPL franchise said on Tuesday.

The 58-year-old More - also the wicket-keeping consultant of the five-time IPL champions, is asymptomatic and has been isolated from the rest of the set-up.

"Mr More is currently asymptomatic and has been isolated. Mumbai Indians and Kiran More have followed all the BCCI health guidelines," MI said in a statement.

"The MI medical team will continue to monitor Mr More''s health and abide by the BCCI protocols,'' it added.

More joins the growing list of Covid-19 cases among the players and support staff ahead of the IPL.

Delhi Capitals spinner Axar Patel and Royal Challengers Bangalore opener have also previously tested positive for Covid-19.

The daily rise in new coronavirus infections in India remained above 90,000 for the third consecutive day on Tuesday taking the nationwide COVID-19 tally of cases to 1,26,86,049, according to the Union Health Ministry.

IPL 2021 starts on April 9 with Mumbai Indians taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai.
