The Chennai Super Kings, led by MS Dhoni, was shaken before the IPL 2020 election. Thirteen members of the Chennai franchise tested positive for the coronavirus and were shocked. In order to reduce more pain, the two main members of CSK, Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina, decided to withdraw from this year’s IPL.
In less than a week after IPL 2020, CSK finally received a positive news. Among the 13 members who have undergone positive tests, two are players – Rutujraj Gaikwad and Deepak Chahar. Although Chahar has recovered from the virus and has been approved to resume training, Gaikwad has not yet undergone two mandatory COVID-19 tests. He is unlikely to appear in the first few games of the CSK opening game, but the young man will pave the way for the team hotel bubble.
“Ruturaj will conduct two tests according to the agreement today and tomorrow. If his test result is negative, he will return to the team hotel bubble. The other staff tested negative and are now back to normal. They are back in the team bubble ,” “India Today” quoted CSK CEO KS Viswanathan.
Ruturaj Gaikwad will have to comply with SOP in certain places
Maharashtra cricketer Gaikwad is also a member of the Indian A team and is expected to fill the void left by the deputy captain Raina. A few days later Chahar, 23-year-old Gaikwad tested positive for COVID-19. After passing the designated exams on Monday and Tuesday, Gaikwad is eager to join the Yellow Army.
However, he will have to comply with the SOP in some places, and after the mandatory COVID-19 test is cleared, he must also undergo cardiovascular and pulmonary function tests. After clearing the test and proving his health, he will be available for selection in a week.
MS Dhoni and his troops will lock a corner with the defending champion Mumbai Indians in the opening ceremony to begin their 2020 IPL voyage. Gaikwad will focus on providing key performances for the team after missing the opening game and possibly playing a few more rounds. CSK is one of the most successful aspects of IPL and has won three trophies.
All IPL 2020 matches will be held in three different locations in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. After the confirmed COVID-19 case, CSK’s training was postponed, but they have been struggling online since the past few days. CSK is undoubtedly committed to getting back on track and moving towards the fourth IPL championship this year.
