Now Corona is seeing havoc on IPL as well. Yesterday's match was canceled after KKR's 2 players tested positive for COVID-19. Now a day after two other members, including the coach of Chennai Super Kings, tested positive for COVID-19, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) informed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that they will not play their next match which will be on Wednesday.
CSK has told the BCCI that they will step into the ground again only when the 6-day test of all players exposed to 2 positive persons under the COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) comes negative.
After the RR match, CSK's next match is against Sunrisers Hyderabad on 7 May, which is within six days.
For information, as per SOP, players are identified as having close contact with the affected person, they have to undergo RT-PCR testing on the first, second and sixth day of isolation.
CSK's decision not to play the match on Wednesday could create more trouble for the BCCI.
