IPL 2020: CSK’s Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad test positive for COVID-19

The 2020 season of Indian Premier League (IPL) received a massive blow on Friday (August 28) after the reports of ten members of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) group being tested positive for COVID-19 broke out.

The list of 10 staffers that had contracted the virus included two Indian players as well. According to the Times of India, the infected player has been identified as fast bowler Deepak Chahar. Apart from Chahar, the first-class cricketer Ruturaj Gaikwad has also been tested positive for coronavirus.

The latest development has also forced the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to put the schedule announcement of the IPL 2020 on hold.

All the franchises had to undergo the novel coronavirus test before they could head on to the field for the training and practice camp. While all the seven franchises passed the test with flying colours, the Super Kings suffered a big setback.

“Adequate measures are in place to tackle the situation, and there is no immediate threat to the tournament. But the announcement of fixtures has been delayed because of this development,” said a BCCI source.

On top of that, the BCCI had also expressed its concern over CSK’s decision to hold a camp before departing to UAE. The apex Indian board had even asked the management to cancel it considering the situation of COVID-19 in the country.

“Senior BCCI officials had cautioned the CSK management about the risks of holding such a camp in India,” the BCCI source added.

The troubles for CSK camp seems to be snowballing as in another development, their premier batsman Suresh Raina has returned to India citing personal reasons. Raina would not be available for the entire season of IPL 2020.

CPL 2020: Barbados Tridents vs Trinbago Knight Riders – Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI and Live Streaming Details

The 17th match of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2020 will take place between Barbados Tridents (BT) and Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain on Saturday (August 29).

While Knight Riders are the table-toppers because of their unbeaten record in the tournament so far, Tridents have lost three out of five matches, and hence they are placed at the third spot.

BT vs TKR, Probable XI:

Barbados Tridents:

The bowling department of Tridents has been impressive but they need to display their ‘A’ game as despite having Rashid Khan and Mitchell Santner in the side, their bowlers are not among the top-5 leading wicket-takers.

While in batting, only Kyle Mayers has been up to the mark for Barbados. Mayers is the second-highest run-scorer in CPL 2020. In five matches, he has accumulated 161 runs.

Probable XI: Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Corey Anderson, Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder(c), Mitchell Santner, Ashley Nurse, Raymon Reifer, Rashid Khan, Nyeem Young, Hayden Walsh.

Trinbago Knight Riders:

Knight Riders are sitting comfortably on top of the points table. The Kieron Pollard-led side have won all their five games. In the previous encounter against Tridents, Riders had scored 185/3, and while chasing the Jason Holder-led team fell short by 19 runs.

Darren Bravo with 147 runs in 5 contests is their leading run-getter while Khary Pierre with five wickets is Riders’ leading wicket-taker.

Probable XI: Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Tim Seifert (wk), Kieron Pollard (c), Dwayne Bravo, Sikandar Raza, Khary Pierre, Fawad Ahmed, Ali Khan.

Here are the Dream 11 suggestions:

Fantasy Suggestion #1:

Tim Seifert (wk), Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster, Darren Bravo, Jason Holder, Mitchell Santner, Kyle Mayers, Kieron Pollard, Rashid Khan, Ashley Nurse, Khary Pierre.

Captain: Darren Bravo ; Vice Captain: Kyle Mayers

Fantasy Suggestion #2:

Shai Hope (wk), Lendl Simmons, Tion Webster, Darren Bravo, Jason Holder, Kyle Mayers, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Rashid Khan, Raymon Reifer, Hayden Walsh.

Squads:

Barbados Tridents: Johnson Charles, Shai Hope (wk), Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder (c), Rashid Khan, Corey Anderson, Ashley Nurse, Mitchell Santner, Raymon Reifer, Nyeem Young, Hayden Walsh, Justin Greaves, Shamarh Brooks, Keon Harding, Joshua Bishop, Shayan Jahangir, Jonathan Carter.
