IPL 2020: Two CSK players Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaekwad test positive for COVID-19

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.

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.

A report has come out on InsideSport on Saturday, claiming that the 1 Indian fast bowler who tested positive is Deepak Chahar.

The CSK member who revealed the information exclusively to InsideSport has strictly requested to remain unnamed.

The unnamed CSK team member said: “We don’t have much knowledge on who exactly has tested positive. I am hearing 2-3 squad members, few support staff members and our CEO’s family member has tested positive.”

InsideSport again asked him, is Deepak Chahar one of the player? The CSK member confirmed: “I think Chahar is one of the players.”.

Along with Chahar, Ruturaj Gaekwad has become the second Chennai Super Kings player to test positive for Coronavirus.

Both the players can return to training only after a 14-day quarantine period, following which they will have to test negative twice, 24 hours apart, before being permitted to re-enter the bio-secure zone.

The CSK member said that they are in a ‘complete state of shock‘ with the development.

He said: “We are in a complete state of shock and very scared. We took every possible precaution and followed the BCCI guidelines to the hilt, still, the virus has stuck the team”.

InsideSport asked him, how many members of the squad have tested positive? He replied: “Honestly, we are not very clear about it. No one from the team management has officially informed us anything. But what we are hearing is 13-14 members of our entire squad have tested positive and some results are still awaited”.

CSK has faced a major setback in the very beiginning of IPL 2020. They have also confirmed on Saturday that their vice-captain Suresh Raina has returned to India citing personal reasons and he will miss the entire IPL 2020.
