Earlier, as many as thirteen COVID-19 positive cases were calculated from a single franchise, Chennai Super Kings (CSK). A general addition somewhere in other franchises has been reported to turn the figure of thirteen to fourteen.
With the rising cases and COVID-19 striking badly, it must be the time for the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) to scrap up. Instead, they are looking forward to every possible means to commence the league ahead.
IPL: A total of fourteen COVID-19 positive cases might be troubling for BCCI
The staff, players, management, and in short everyone from the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have been tested COVID-19 negative for the Indian Premier League (IPL) as a consequence of another test. Earlier, as many as thirteen contestants of the Yellow Army were tested positive which was shocking enough to hear.
As there are no negative symptoms, MS Dhoni’s leading side is yet to be tested negative once again before featuring in the practice matches.
This must-have been an alarming sign for Dhoni’s leading franchise as they are falling short of players.
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.
