Chennai Super Kings' preparations for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season have run into complications after it emerged that a bowler and some staff members of the franchise tested positive for COVID-19. The CSK bowler in question is reportedly a pacer who has represented India. Meanwhile, at least 10 members of the CSK support staff have also tested positive, which has resulted in the entire CSK contingent needing to undergo a fourth COVID-19 test. Due to the development, the team's quarantine period has now been extended till September 1. All the members who tested positive have been isolated and put into another wing of the hotel. They will undergo a test after 15 days and will have to get a clearance from the cardiologist before rejoining the squad.
CSK, along with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and defending champions Mumbai Indians, had arrived in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on August 21 for IPL 2020, which is scheduled to begin on September 19. The MS Dhoni-led CSK held a brief training camp in Chennai before leaving for the UAE and were the only team to do so.
As per IPL protocols, the players were to be tested on the first, third, and sixth days of the quarantine period and would be allowed to train only if they return negative results in all three tests.
