The whole of Chennai Super Kings squad is in isolation and as a consequence the IPL 2021 match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday will be reschduled. This is the second one game at IPL 2021 to be rescheduled after Monday’s match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore was once also postponed with two KKR players testing positive for COVID-19. KKR’s Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier tested positive for the virus, the IPL said, and both cricketers have been lonely from the remainder of the squad.

Chennai Super Kings final played Mumbai Indians on May 1. Rajasthan Royals’ final outing in the tournament was once on May 2 against SunRisers Hyderabad.

The IPL bio-bubble was once breached by the virus, which has ravaged cities all across India with the country’s healthcare system overwhelmed with patients and running short on fundamental supplies of medical oxygen and medicines.

KKR are based in Ahmedabad while CSK and Rajasthan Royals are in Delhi – the two venues hosting the second one leg of matches at the IPL.

In Delhi, five ground staff of the Delhi and District Cricket Organization (DDCA) had tested positive for COVID-19. Alternatively, DDCA president Rohan Jaitley said the staff members were not on duty.

Earlier, Mumbai and Chennai had hosted the first leg and sources said that the BCCI is likely to move the rest of the league back to Mumbai by May 7.


The tournament is currently scheduled to be played in Delhi and Ahmedabad until May 8, following which Bengaluru and Kolkata will host the remainder of the league games.

The playoffs and the last are scheduled to be played in Ahmedabad. The last will be played on May 30.
