IPL 2021: COVID Situation in CSK Camp – L Balaji Among Two to Test Positive in Latest Report
Chennai Super Kings’ bowling coach L Balaji and their bus cleaner have tested positive for COVID-19 in the latest reports that have come in on Monday evening. ANI reported that the team’s training session in Delhi has been called off as a precautionary measure.
It was reported in the morning that Balaji, the bus cleaner and CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan turned positive results for COVID tests. The trio took a rapid antigen test on Monday morning, which turned out negative results. However, the latest reports, believed to be RT PCR tests, have turned positive for two of them.
The rest of the CSK squad members have turned negative results. Balaji, though, was in the dug out during CSK’s match against Mumbai Indians on Saturday.
The development comes after the IPL confirmed on Monday afternoon that two players from Kolkata Knight Riders – Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier – tested positive for the virus in Ahmedabad. Five groundsmen in Delhi too turned positive for the virus, but they were not on duty over the last two days.
CSK are second in the points table and last played a game on Saturday. They are scheduled to take on Rajasthan Royals in their next match on Wednesday.
