Chennai: Three-time IPL champion team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has been hit by Corona epidemic. There are reports that some members of CSK have been found positive in the deadly corona virus test. For this reason, the period of quarantine period of CSK team has increased. This is a bad news for captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his team CSK, due to which the practice of the players of the team has been carried forward for a week. His players were to start practice in Dubai from Friday.
Sources associated with the franchise confirmed but it is not yet known, who has been infected from Corona among the players, support staff or officials? It has been learned that after reaching Dubai, the team members were tested Covid-19, which has come positive. For this reason, CSK will now have to stay in Quarantine for another week.
The players and support staff of the Chennai Super Kings team reached Dubai on 21 August and were already undergoing the mandatory six-day quarantine imposed by the BCCI. In view of the increasing corona cases in India, the IPL is taking place in the UAE this year which will start from 19 September.
It has also been reported that the entire team of CSK, including players, support staff and officials, was tested for the fourth time on Friday. The BCCI made it mandatory for the teams to undergo corona virus test three times before reaching UAE, only after which they could start practice. The result of the fourth Covid-19 Test of CSK players will now be known on Saturday.
Sources said that the CSK team took all necessary precautions after reaching Dubai. He said, “Even when football started in Europe, some players had come to Corona Test positive. Therefore, with the IPL's eight teams and more than 1000 members, there is such a possibility. This can happen with any team. It is unfortunate that this happened to CSK despite taking all precautions.”
