Nevertheless, Chennai Super Kings asserted that three staff members tested negative.

It emerged that Chennai Super Kings CEO Kasi Viswanathan, bowling coach L Balaji and a lower rung staff member tested positive on Sunday; however, their reports returned negative on Monday. A top BCCI source declared or announced the same. Apart from KKR’s Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier, a few groundsmen of the Delhi stadium also tested positive for the virus.
