Former India cricketer MS Dhoni‘s mother, Devaki Devi, and father, Pan Singh have tested positive for Covid-19. Dhoni’s parents have been admitted to a private hospital in Ranchi.
MS Dhoni’s father and mother are receiving treatment at Pulse Superspeciality Hospital in Ranchi.
Dhoni, the Chennai Super Kings captain, is in Mumbai leading the 3-time champions in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League. Dhoni is due to lead CSK in their 4th match of IPL 2021 on Wednesday against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium.
However, Dhoni had spent time with family after IPL 2020 in the UAE as he did not feature in any competitive matches before the ongoing season of IPL.
Dhoni joined Chennai Super Kings as early as March as he oversaw and led a training camp with domestic players in Chennai.
All the 8 IPL franchises are in strict bio-bubble environments across the country even as the Covid-19 cases are surging at an unprecedented pace in the second wave.
In the past 24 hours, India has seen over 2.95 lakh fresh Covid-19 cases, pushing the caseload in India to over 1.56 crore.
