All the players are returning home after leaving the IPL in the wake of the covid expansion. However, Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has said that he will leave the team hotel only after everyone, including the team members and coaches, returns home. According to CSK team sources, Dhoni has decided to leave the team hotel only after everyone, including foreign players, is ready to return home.
The return journey of foreign players is in crisis as various countries have banned flights from India. As India is the host country for the IPL, Dhoni said the focus should be on facilitating the return of foreign players and coaches.
Mahi Bhai has informed everyone that the team that he will be the last person to leave the hotel. His suggestion is that action should be taken to repatriate those, including foreign players, first. After that, Indian players should be given a chance to return home. Dhoni will board a flight to Ranchi after everyone returns safely, sources close to CSKO said, according to a national media report.
The BCCI has decided to suspend the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) mid-season due to critical circumstances, including Chennai Super Kings coaches Mike Hussey and Lakshmipathy Balaji.
