CSK squad have to take extra precautions as coronavirus had affected their camp very badly & they need to take every step very carefully. CSK’s two players and several members of the support staff were found COVID-positive and that resulted in an extended quarantine for the whole camp. So CSK’s players are seen practicing social distancing norms even while posing for photo shoots as Faf Du Plessis and Shane Watson were seen maintaining a “duo arm distance” from one another. CSK posted a photo showing Watson & Du Plessis making an elbow bump & smiling for the camera.
Both the players are top order batsman of CSK’s squad. Watson has been an established batsman for the CSK’s squad who scored 555 runs in CSK’s title winning season. Faf Du Plessis who is South Africa’s batsman scored 396 runs at 36 for CSK last season & now could be seen at No 3 spot in this year’s IPL as Suresh Raina pulled out of IPL 2020 for personal reasons.
Recently on Sunday Watson shared a video on social media showing Dhoni practicing huge sixes in the nets & hitting a ball straight out of the ground during a practice match. CSK will play their first match on September 19 against defending Champions Mumbai Indians in the UAE.
