Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, BCCI has moved the IPL outside India to the UAE. The 13th edition of IPL is scheduled to start from 19th September. All the 8 IPL teams have already arrived in UAE.
According to a report by InsideSport, 13 members of Chennai Super Kings have tested positive for COVID-19. Among the 13 people, 1 Indian fast bowler and 12 members from support staff and social media team were reported positive. InsideSport claims they tried reaching out to CSK CEO Vishwanathan but he was unavailable to answer.
Surprisingly, CSK had earlier announced that they have extended their quarantine period till 1st September, though they have completed their six-day mandatory quarantine period today.
The CSK squad was expected to start training at the ICC Academy from today but the sudden postponement of the quarantine period has raised doubts in the minds of all the people.
Now, it has been reported that 13 members of CSK have tested positive, so this is the probable reason for extending their quarantine period.
According to a report by ESPNCricinfo, other teams are already monitoring the developments in the Super Kings camp. Another franchise official said they even urged the IPL to issue an advisory to all teams to update everybody about the test results of all teams.
