The BCCI has laid down various rules (SOP’s) for IPL matches. It has been reported that IPL players can take their families with them but cannot stay close to them during training and matches.
In this situation, it has been said that the Chennai Super Kings players have to travel to the UAE to participate in the IPL without their families. It has also been reported that some foreign players from CSK will not be able to participate in the opening matches of the IPL. With the Caribbean Premier League and the England-Australian series set to begin in the IPL, CSK foreign players like Dwayne Bravo, Mitchell Santner, Imran Tahir and Sam Curran and Josh Hazlewood will not be able to play in the opening matches of the IPL.
The IPL 2020 matches will be held in the UAE from September 19 to November 10. All the 8 teams participating in the IPL are involved in the activities. All teams will travel to the UAE on the 20th August.
The CSK team will meet in Chennai on the 19th of this month and then travel to the UAE on chartered flights. Also, three floors of a 5-star hotel near Burj Khalifa have been booked and the team will be staying there.
According to the rules laid down by the BCCI regarding the IPL, team players are not allowed to be close to their families during training and matches. Following this, the CSK team will be traveling to the UAE without their families.
We have already seen some glimpses of a practice session by CSK’s vice-captain Suresh Raina, Piyush Chawla along with DC’s Rishab Pant in Mohhammed Shami’s (KXIP) farm plot. All the 4 players seem to look in good touch with both bat and ball.
