Chennai Super Kings pacer Deepak Chahar, who was one of the 13 members to have tested positive for COVID-19 has finally recovered from the virus. Earlier this week, a panic situation created within the CSK camp when close to 13 members tested positive including Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad.
After the news broke out, the Chennai Super Kings camp had their quarantine extended until the 3rd test happened. Today, on 1st September all members of the squad tested negative and it is likely that they will start training very soon at the ICC Academy.
