Chennai Super Kings pacer Deepak Chahar has recovered from coronavirus after returning negative Covid-19 test twice ahead of IPL 2020. Chahar has now returned to Chennai Super Kings’ team bubble in the UAE, where IPL will start from September 19.
Chennai Super Kings players had to spend more time in quarantine after arriving in Dubai as 13 members, including 2 players, tested positive for Covid-19 during their mandatory isolation period. While the rest of the teams began training during the last week of August, CSK hit the nets only in the 1st week of September.
CSK begin their IPL 2020 campaign against defending champions Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi on September 19.
“Deepak Chahar has returned two negative tests for Covid 19 and is back in team bubble,” CSK CEO KS Viswanathan was quoted as saying by PTI on Wednesday.
“Now as per BCCI protocol, he will undergo a cardiovascular test which will be an indicator of his recovery. After that, he will have another Covid Test and if he is negative he can join the training,” Viswanathan said.
“It depends on his recovery. I can’t put a timeline but another four days minimum. But it’s not confirmed,” Viswanathan replied when he was asked how many more days will it take for Chahar to make a comeback.
