IPL 2021: “We are well aware of his family situation and the support has been set up” – CSK coach Fleming on MS Dhoni’s family
COVID-19 situation in MS Dhoni’s family is under control, says CSK coach Stephen Fleming.
Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming said that the franchise is all there to “monitor’ the condition of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s (MS Dhoni) parents, who are being treated in a private hospital after testing positive for COVID-19.
During the post match conference after CSK’s win against Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday night, April 21 at Wankhede Stadium, in the ongoing season of IPL 2021, Fleming said that 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 Dhoni and his family. The situation is under control for now but we will monitor that over the next few days,” Stephen Fleming said.
The CSK captain’s parents, mother Devika Devi and father Pan Singh, were admitted to a private hospital in Ranchi after testing positive for highly contagious COVID-19 on Wednesday. The coach further said that he has spoken to Dhoni and they have created a set-up for his parents.
“It’s a tough time for everybody and the fact that it’s affecting India in the way it is, but also it’ll reach into the IPL with friends and family, and hopefully, not into the bubbles. We’ve spent quite a bit of time talking about care of the friends and families in the wider group.
“We have that responsibility to make sure that he’s got the support he needs and hope that his family recovers quickly,” Fleming continued.
