 Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batting coach Michael Hussey on Tuesday tested positive for COVID-19, a day after the team's bowling coach Laxmipathy Balaji returned positive.

This was confirmed by Indian Premier League sources hours after the tournament was indefinitely suspended due to a COVID-19 outbreak in its bio-bubble.

"Hussey was tested and his sample came positive. We sent it for retesting but that has also come positive," an IPL source told PTI.

On Monday, CSK bowling coach Balaji along with Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers Sandeep Warrier and Varun Chakravarthy had also returned positive results.

The suspension of the league was announced after Sunrisers Hyderabad's wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha and with Delhi Capitals spinner Amit Mishra tests returned positive.
