Continuation of difficulties in IPL event
Let me tell you that there are continuing difficulties regarding this season of IPL. The IPL has suffered another major setback after Chennai Super Kings members came to Corona positive. According to reports, a member of the IPL broadcast team has been found to be Corona positive.
Broadcasting rights of IPL are with Star Sports. Star’s team was scheduled to leave for Dubai on 31 August, but all members are now barred from leaving for UAE after one member was found to be Corona positive. Now the remaining people will go to Dubai after a week.
At the same time, several members of the Chennai Super Kings, including two players, were corona. Because of this, the quarantine period of CSK team has been extended. At the same time, he got another big shock when star batsman Suresh Raina withdrew his name from this season.
In such a situation, CSK’s team has been the most affected. For this reason, he will not be able to play the inaugural match of this season because he needs time to come out.
