The BCCI, on Saturday, delayed the announcement of IPL 2020 schedule after multiple CSK members tested positive. It was reported that 13 members of the CSK have tested COVID-19 positive and one of them is their premier pacer Deepak Chahar.

The BCCI released a statement saying 13 personnel have contracted the virus and are under isolation at the moment. However, the board refrained from taking any names. The release also mentioned that two players are also COVID-19 positive and these two names are reportedly Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad.

As per the norms, members who’ve tested positive for novel coronavirus will have to undergo rounds of testing in the next few days, delaying CSK’s plans of kick-starting their IPL 2020 preparations. The members will only be allowed to join their teammates after testing negative for COVID-19 twice.

The news of CSK members testing COVID-19 positive started doing rounds on the internet in no time. Fans, as well as prominent cricket names, wished them a speedy recovery as the feasibility of IPL 2020 is also dependent on their health status.
