Ruturaj Gaikwad becomes the second Chennai Super Kings (CSK) player to test positive for Covid-19 after Deepak Chahar. Suresh Raina returned to India for personal reasons and he will not be available for the entire IPL season.

12 members of their support staff including Chahar were tested positive for the novel coronavirus in Dubai, on Sunday. BCCI official “As far as we know, one of the senior-most officials of the CSK management, an official’s wife, and at least two members of their social media team are also Covid-19 positive. There are a couple of net bowlers who have also tested positive,”

All the members of the Chennai Super Kings who have tested positive for Covid-19 are stable and have been isolated. CSK are following all safety protocols, as per the directions of the health officials the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) SOPs.The IPL quarantine policy “This will follow the Government policy and is currently 14 days. During the 14-day quarantine, the individual will be tested on Day 10, Day 13, and Day 14.”

The big question is was CSK management decision to conduct five days training camp in severely affected Chennai responsible for all these. The eyebrows are raised against CSK decision to go ahead with a five-day preparatory camp in Chennai. “CSK practiced three days in Chennai out of the five days. Was there any tangible gain achieved from that camp?” a BCCI to PTI.

The CSK CEO when asked about the need for this camp ,told media that MS was crystal clear in this regard.

When we announced the tournament is going to happen, I had reservations about conducting the camp here because the bio-bubble had to be created. In fact, sent a message to him (asking) whether it will be worthwhile having a camp for 5 days before going to Dubai. But the captain was crystal clear in his thoughts. He (Dhoni) said ‘sir, we have not played for nearly 4-5 months. All of us need to get together in Chennai. We should be in a bio-bubble in Chennai so that we get used to that when we land in Dubai’. CSK CEO

IPL official further stated “If you see, they all had tested negative for Covid during the two RT-PCR tests conducted in Chennai ahead of their departure. Had they been positive, they wouldn’t have been able to board the flight in the first place,” so where had the chain started is the question hounding everyone.
