It fact, it resulted in both Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh opting out of the IPL. While Raina abruptly left the team in the UAE and returned home 'frightened', Harbhajan decided to be with family in India.

According to reports, Chahar is back with the Chennai Super Kings in the team hotel and should be available for the crunch match against defending champions Mumbai Indians.

CSK CEO K.S. Viswanathan said the 28-year-old will now undergo a cardiovascular test, to be conducted by the BCCI, apart from one more COVID test, before hitting the nets.

Last week, Chahar shared an online video of himself doing exercises.
