Question mark over the upcoming IPL season

The IPL opener played between the previous season's finalists which happen to be Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.

BCCI‘s worst nightmare seems to have come true with the corona virus making its entry into the Chennai Super Kings camp in the UAE. Around 13 CSK members including two cricketers are reported to have been tested positive for the deadly virus putting a big question mark over the upcoming IPL season scheduled to start from September 19.

What the positive cases mean is the IPL opener, which is traditionally played between the previous season’s finalists, is in doubt with CSK being the runners-up in 2019.

The COVID-19 positive tests mean CSK will have to undergo a 14-day quarantine period instead of six days which will greatly affect their preparations.
