The Chennai Super Kings’ match against the Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday has been postponed after two staff members from the CSK camp returned positive Covid-19 tests.
CSK on Tuesday confirmed that bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji and a support staff member tested positive during a recent round of testing in Delhi.
The team has since informed IPL organisers that the whole squad will conduct a week-long quarantine period to ensure no further spread of coronavirus.

This comes after Monday’s match between the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Royal Challengers Bangalore was also postponed due to two positive cases in the KKR camp.
Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier were the two casualties, while Australian duo Pat Cummins and Ben Cutting are also currently isolating from the rest of the KKR squad after feeling ill over this past weekend.
Tuesday’s game between the Mumbai Indians and the Sunrisers Hyderabad is scheduled to go ahead as planned.
