All members of the Chennai Super Kings team, except for the 13 who tested positive for COVID-19 early last week, have come out negative in the latest tests, Chennai Super Kings CEO KS Viswanathan said on Tuesday.
The team will also undergo another test on September 3, and if they clear all the tests, they will start training from September 4.
“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,” Viswanathan said from Dubai where the team is based right now.
The 13 members tested positive earlier this week have gone under a 14-day quarantine period and will be tested at the end of their quarantine period.
“Deepak and Ruturaj will complete their 14-day quarantine and then join training after two negative tests as per protocol,” he added.
It will be a relief for all the members and the CSK franchise along with the BCCI. Also, one more good news for CSK camp is that the South African skipper Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi have also reached Dubai and are under isolation and will join the team on September 7 for practice after testing negative in all the three tests.
