Chennai Super Kings shared a lovely recap video of their season after IPL 2021 was suspended indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Season 14 of the Indian Premier League was suspended last week after a number of players in the IPL bio-bubble tested positive for COVID-19. Kolkata Knight Riders duo Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier had tested positive in the Ahmedabad bubble of IPL 2021 while Delhi Capitals’ Amit Mishra and Wriddhiman Saha of Sunrisers Hyderabad also tested positive. Their teams were in Delhi. The increase in the number of COVID-19 cases led to the BCCI postponing the IPL. Later it was confirmed CSK bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji and head coach Stephen Fleming had also returned positive results.
