“We have that responsibility to make sure that he’s got the support he needs and we hope that his family recovers quickly”

MS Dhoni’s parents, in his hometown of Ranchi, have tested positive for Covid-19 and were admitted to a hospital on Wednesday. Dhoni has chosen to stay on with the Chennai Super Kings for their IPL 2021 campaign, and Stephen Fleming, the team coach, confirmed that the franchise is “well aware of his family’s situation, and the support has been set up for MS and his family.”

“From a management point of view, we’re well aware of his family’s situation, and the support has been set up for MS and his family. Talking with MS, the situation is under control for now but we will monitor that over the next few days,” Fleming said in a press interaction after the Super Kings beat the Kolkata Knight Riders by 18 runs in Mumbai on Wednesday. “Obviously, it’s a tough time for everybody, and the fact that it’s affecting India the way it is, but also reaching the IPL with friends and family – hopefully not into the bubbles, but we’ve spent quite a bit of time talking about care of the friends and families in the wider group.
