All the 13 Chennai Super Kings cricketers who had tested positive for COVID19 had tested negative recently.
According to PTI, all 13 members of CSK, who tested positive for COVID-19 early last week, have come out negative in the latest round of tests.
“Yes, all 13 members 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.
Viswanathan added that as a precautionary measure the mandatory tests for CSK has been increased from three to five.
CSK had landed in Dubai a few days ago and is the only team who hasn’t begun their practice yet.
IPL will begin from September 19th and will go on till November 10th. CSK is unlikely to play the first match because of their last training and RCB might play on the opening day against the defending champions MI.
