Chennai: With less than three weeks to go for the start of the Indian Premier League, a Chennai Super Kings player and 12 support staff members have tested positive for coronavirus. As per a report in TOI, a close source of the franchise has revealed this piece of information.
“Even when football started in Europe, a few players had tested positive. So with eight IPL teams, and over 1000 members, this was a possibility. This could have happened to any team. It is just unlucky that it happened to CSK despite taking all kinds of precautions,” the source said.
As per the same report, the CSK player identified to have tested positive for the novel virus is a fast bowler, but the name is yet to be known.
