After Covid-19 outbreak, CSK's camp in Chennai under scanner

Aug 29, 2020 10:56 IST

As MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings battle the Covid-19 outbreak in their team in Dubai, their pre-tournament camp in Chennai has come into focus. The 5-day camp which reportedly was organised by CSK at the Chepauk cricket stadium on the orders of skipper Dhoni is under scanner as the area Triplicane is one of the worst affected in not just Chennai but the entire country. According to a report in ESPNCricinfo, many support staff at the Chepauk come from local lanes of Triplicane which is very congested severely affected by Covid-19. In July, the area was also a containment zone but the CSK management decided to organise a bio-secure bubble to host the camp before their departure to Dubai to play IPL. It is widely reported that many members of the travelling party including an Indian cricketer has tested positive for Covid-19 during the checks in the UAE and the team is under extra-week long isolation.
