Chennai Super Kings pacer Deepak Chahar on Wednesday returned a second negative test for coronavirus, paving way for his return to team bubble within the UAE, where IPL starts September 19.
Chahar and another cricketer had tested positive for the dreaded virus along side several other members of the CSK contingent after reaching Dubai for the league.
“Deepak Chahar has returned two negative tests for Covid 19 and is back in team bubble,” CSK CEO KS Viswanathan told PTI on Wednesday.
“Now as per BCCI protocol he will undergo a cardio vascular test which can be an indicator of his recovery. then he will have another Covid Test and if he’s negative he can join the training,” Viswanathan said.
Deepak has completed 14 day isolation during a separate hotel.
Asked what percentage more days will it deem the seamer to comeback, Viswanathan said, “It depends on his recovery. I cant put a timeline but another four days minimum. But it isn’t confirmed.
