Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have welcomed their two stars of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at early morning on 1st September, Tuesday.
Two South African cricketers, Faf Du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi have reached Dubai and went straight into quarantine. The reason for directly being isolated is the worst health situation of CSK camp as almost thirteen from the camp were tested COVID-19 positive.
It raised the health concerns along with the shock after Suresh Raina left for India amidst the tragedy his family went through in Punjab. There might be a huge blow for MS Dhoni’s commanding side as the speculations released the absence of the spinner, Harbhajan Singh, being worried about the camp’s situation. It is to be noted that he still has not joined the squad.

“We hope that everything will be sorted out over the next few days and we will be able to come up with our best performance in the IPL,” a source was quoted as saying in The Times of India (TOI).
However, upon being tested once again, the Yellow Army have been COVID-19 negative and are yet to be tested once again for being eligible for the practice.
The BCCI was to reveal the complete schedule on 29th August that has been now delayed after the virus strike CSK.
The schedule has still been pending amidst the COVID-19 strike at UAE. If the cases continue to rise, it might be a threat for the board to organize the league.
The league will commence on 19th September in full swing but with all the matches behind closed doors. UAE is still not free of COVID-19 and the more cases being reported to have interrupted deciding the schedule.
