The whole of Chennai Super Kings squad is in isolation and as a consequence the IPL 2021 match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday will be reschduled. This is the second game at IPL 2021 to be rescheduled after Monday’s match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore was also postponed with two KKR players testing positive for COVID-19. KKR’s Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier tested positive for the virus, the IPL said, and both cricketers have been isolated from the rest of the squad.

Chennai Super Kings last played Mumbai Indians on May 1. Rajasthan Royals’ last outing in the tournament was on May 2 against SunRisers Hyderabad.

The IPL bio-bubble was breached by the virus, which has ravaged cities all across India with the country’s healthcare system overwhelmed with patients and running short on essential supplies of medial oxygen and medicines.

KKR are based in Ahmedabad while CSK and Rajasthan Royals are in Delhi – the two venues hosting the second leg of matches at the IPL.

Promoted

Earlier, Mumbai and Chennai had hosted the first leg and sources say that the BCCI is likely to move the remainder of the league back to Mumbai by May 7.
