CSK took to Twitter to release a statement from CEO Kasi Viswanathan which stated that the team offers complete support to the 33-year-old.
CSK in all sorts of trouble ahead of IPL 2020
CSK have been rocked by various issues in the lead-up to IPL 2020. The 3-time IPL champions saw over 10 members of their travelling contingent, including Indian pacer Deepak Chahar, test positive for COVID-19. CSK's pre-season camp in Chennai is under investigation, as they were the only team to conduct training in India before flying out to the UAE.
CSK's IPL 2020 training sessions in the UAE have been postponed, with the team's quarantine period extended till the end of this month. MS Dhoni's men are awaiting the result of a 4th COVID-19 test which could, in all probability, make or break IPL 2020.
Teams like the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the Rajasthan Royals (RR) and the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have commenced training, with the likes of the Mumbai Indians (MI) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) soon to follow suit.
Cricket fans all over the world were looking forward to seeing Suresh Raina in action in IPL 2020, as the southpaw recently announced his retirement from international cricket alongside his skipper MS Dhoni. The Men in Yellow will now have to find an adequate replacement for Raina, given his importance to their batting lineup.
We at Sportskeeda offer our sympathies to Suresh Raina and CSK during this tough time.
