Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming said the franchise would “monitor” the condition of skipper Mahendra Singh Doni’s parents, who are being treated at a private hospital in Ranchi, after testing positive for COVID-19.
At a post-match press conference following CSK’s victory over Kolkata Knights on Wednesday night, Fleming said the situation was “under control”.
“From a management point of view, we are well aware of his marital status and support has been created for MS and his family. The situation is under control for now, but we will monitor this over the next few days,” Fleming said.
The parents of the former skipper from India, mother Devika Devi and father Pan Singh, were admitted to the hospital after a positive test for a highly infected virus on Wednesday.
The New Zealander said he had talked to the skipper about it and they had set up a setup for his family.
“It’s a difficult time for everyone and the fact that it affects India in the way it is, but it will also reach IPL with friends and family, and hopefully not in the bubbles. We spent a lot of time talking about caring for friends and family in the wider group.
“We have this responsibility to make sure he has the support he needs and to hope that his family recovers quickly,” Fleming added.
