Two staff members and a bus driver at Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have tested positive for Covid-19. They have been isolated from the rest of the team. The team has cancelled their practice session ahead of Wednesday’s match against Rajasthan Royals at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. CSK have been based in Delhi for the second leg of their IPL 2021 matches. They have played two matches at the Arun Jaitely Stadium – against SunRisers Hyderabad on April 28 and against Mumbai Indians on May 1. CSK moved for Delhi from Mumbai, where they played their first leg of games. Both Delhi and Mumbai have been cities with heavy Covid-19 caseload.
This is the second incident within the span of a day when players or staff members at IPL teams have tested positive for the virus. Earlier on Monday, two Kolkata Knight Riders players Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier tested positive for Covid-19 leading to the postponement of Monday’s match between KKR and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
