Chennai Super Kings pacer Deepak Chahar has received the necessary BCCI clearance after his recovery from COVID-19. He will start his training from Friday.
Chahar entered the team’s bio-bubble on Wednesday after returning two negative tests and had to undergo a cardio vascular test as per the BCCI protocol.
“He will start training from today. He has got necessary clearance from BCCI. The team is training hard and in good shape. We are looking forward to our first game,” CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan told PTI.
Last year’s runners-up CSK were the last team to start training after 13 members of their contingent tested positive. Another setback was Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh pulling out of the tournament due to personal reasons.
Last year’s runners-up CSK face defending champions Mumbai Indians in the tournament-opener on September 19.
