After the Kolkata Knight Riders camp, the Chennai Super Kings have been hit by coronavirus as three members of the CSK contingent have tested positive for Covid-19, although all the players safe.

According to a report in ESPNCricinfo, the franchise's chief executive officer Kasi Viswanathan, bowling coach L Balaji and a bus cleaner has tested positive.

The report further added that all the players, who are currently in New Delhi, have tested negative, the results of which came on Sunday.

The three members would undergo another test on Monday to check out the possibility of a false positive. If they test positive again, they would need to spend 10 days in isolation outside the team bubble and return with two negative tests before re-entering the camp.

The 30th IPL game between KKR and RCB has been postponed after two Kolkata Knight Riders players were tested positive.

The Super Kings are dealing with an epidemic in the squad bubble for the second time. Viswanathan's wife was one of the members, including players Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad, to test positive ahead of the IPL 2020 in the UAE.
