IPL 2020 is one of the most highly anticipated sports events of the year in India, however, captain MS Dhoni's team Chennai Super Kings were met with a roadblock after 13 members of their IPL contingent tested positive for Coronavirus. The 13 members also included 2 players- Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaekwad, while the other 11 were from CSK’s support staff. While the team was supposed to kickstart their pre-season camp from August 28, it was then pushed as they were sent into another one week of quarantine.
However, there’s now good news for Chennai Super Kings fans as well as the CSK camp as all members have reportedly tested negative for Coronavirus in the test which was carried out on all players and staff members of CSK on Monday. According to Times Of India, all of them will undergo yet another test on September 3 after which they can resume training and get back to the field from September 5. However, players Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaekwad would have to continue to stay in quarantine for a little longer and will not be available for the training session before September 12.
It has been quite challenging for Chennai Super Kings already as Suresh Raina earlier pulled out of the tournament and returned to India from UAE due to some personal reasons.
While speculations about the same surfaced, Suresh Raina finally broke his silence and recently shared a series of tweets in which he mentioned that two members of his family have been killed in an attack in Punjab. Two more relatives were injured and he requested Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and Punjab Police to look into the matter.
