Chennai Super Kings coach Michael Hussey on Tuesday tested positive for COVID-19 the day after IPL Bowling coach L Balaji returned positively for the terrible virus.
This was confirmed by sources in the Indian Premier League hours after the 14th edition of the lucrative league T20 was suspended indefinitely due to an outbreak of COVID-19 in its bio-bubble.
Hussey’s test reports came in on Tuesday.
“Hussey was tested and tested positive. We sent him for retesting, but that was also positive,” an IPL source told PTI.
On Monday, CSK bowling coach Balaji, along with Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers Sandeep Warrier and Varun Chakravarthy, also returned positive results.
The spread of infections led to the postponement of two IPL games earlier.
The league’s suspension was announced after Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Wikipedia batsman Wriddhiman Saha tested positive for COVID-19 together with Delhi Capitals veteran spinner Amit Mishra.
