After around 13 members of the Chennai Super Kings team was found positive for COVID-19, there’s another bad news for the CSK fans.
Suresh Raina, who is referred to as the ‘Chinna Thala’ by the CSK fans has returned to India citing personal reasons. The CSK team arrived in Dubai, UAE on 21st August and have been in quarantine since then.
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.
The CSK squad was expected to start training at the ICC Academy but the sudden postponement of the quarantine period has raised doubts in the minds of all the people. Now, it has been reported that around 13 members of CSK have tested positive, so this is the probable reason for extending their quarantine period.

KS Viswanathan, CEO, Chennai Super Kings offered support to Suresh Raina and his family. He said: “Suresh Raina has returned to India for personal reasons and will be unavailable for the remainder of the IPL season. Chennai Super Kings offers complete support to Suresh and his family during this time.”
This is a major setback for CSK in IPL 2020. Suresh Raina has been one of their mainstays. ‘Chinna Thala’ will surely be missed by ‘Thala’ (MS Dhoni).
