After a brief Covid-19 scare, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are reportedly looking ahead to restart training for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in UAE. A PTI report said that all members of the CSK contingent, except for the 13 who tested positive for COVID-19 early last week, have come out negative in the latest tests.

“All others, apart from the 13, have tested negative for COVID-19. They will have to undergo another test on Thursday, September 3. We are likely to start training on Friday, September 4,” CSK’s CEO Kasi Viswanathan told PTI from Dubai where the team is based right now.

“Deepak and Ruturaj will complete their 14-day quarantine and then join training after two negative tests as per protocol,” he added.

The 13 infected contingent members will also be tested at the end of their quarantine period.

CSK are the only team that are yet to regroup for training in UAE. The team landed in Dubai on August 21 and were supposed to begin training after seven days.

As per the protocols laid, every member associated with the league will have to take three mandatory Covid-19 tests after landing in UAE.

Viswanathan also mentioned that as a precautionary measure, IPL had increased the tests from three to five for CSK members.

The two CSK players, who had earlier tested positive for Covid-19, are expected to start training after completing the test process mandated by the league.
