Defending champions Mumbai Indians are set to host last season’s runner-up Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL 2020 opener on September 19. In what will be a rematch of last season’s final, CSK and Mumbai Indians will face each other in a blockbuster opening match. CSK’s participation in the opening game was initially in doubt after the team’s pre-season preparation was hampered by positive COVID-19 tests. 13 members of the CSK camp, including Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad, had tested positive and are currently in two-week quarantine. IPL 2020: CSK Captain MS Dhoni and Team Finally Start Practice in UAE (Watch Video).

The rest of the CSK squad, however, cleared two rounds of COVID-19 tests and already started their pre-season camp two days ago. They have looked in good touch and will be geared to start the season with a revenge win against the reigning champions. The other 13 members of the CSK camp will complete their 14-day quarantine period and will then undergo two COVID-19 tests. They will only be allowed to join the camp if they clear both the tests.

Meanwhile, CSK’s preparation for a fourth IPL title also dealt a major blow with the withdrawal of Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina. Mumbai also will miss senior pacer Lasith Malinga, who has also withdrawn from this season’s IPL. A number of players have opted out of IPL 2020 due to concerns over safety amid the COVID—19 pandemic.
