Mumbai, April 22
Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming said the franchise would “monitor” the condition of skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s parents, who are being treated at a private hospital in Ranchi after testing positive for Covid.
At the post-match press conference after CSK’s win over Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday night, Fleming said the situation is “under control”.
“From the management point of view, we’re well aware of his family situation and the support has been set up for MS and his family. The situation is under control for now but we will monitor that over the next few days,” Fleming said.
The former India skipper’s parents, mother Devika Devi and father Pan Singh, were admitted to the hospital after testing positive for the highly contagious virus on Wednesday.
The New Zealander said he had spoken to the skipper about it and they had created a set-up for his family.
“We have that responsibility to make sure that he’s got the support he needs and hope that his family recovers quickly,” Fleming added. PTI
