Chennai Super Kings fast bowler Deepak Chahar on Tuesday handed a huge boost to his franchise by delivering a positive update about his health. The right-arm pacer was one of the 13 members from the Chennai Super Kings camp who had tested positive for the dreaded COVID-19 last week. Along with him, batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad was tested positive too while others were non-playing members of the team.
Deepak Chahar took to social media to give his fans and followers the update, saying he is “recovering well” and is “hoping to return to action soon”. He posted a video to give the update and also thanked his fans and followers for their love. He was seen doing leg exercises in the video as he urged his followers to never miss ‘your leg day no matter where you are and what condition you are’.
“Thank you all for your love and prayers..I am better now and trying my best to keep myself fit..hopefully you will see me in action very soon..Keep showering your love and never miss your leg day. #ipl #legday #ipl2020 #recovery (sic),” Deepak Chahar said in his post.

In another boost for Chennai Super Kings, all of their players and staff members, except the 13 who had tested positive, have tested negative for COVID-19. CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan confirmed the news on Tuesday. The result comes after CSK members underwent the 1st of their additional 2 Covid-19 tests on Monday.
The latest development must be a welcome news for CSK who have suffered several setbacks since landing in UAE. Apart from their members testing positive, their batting mainstay Suresh Raina has left the team too and has returned to India citing personal reasons. He will miss the entire competition. IPL 2020 is scheduled to start on September 19.
