Bengaluru: Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is planning to set up a preparatory camp ahead of the tournament from early August.
IPL Governing Council chairman Brijesh Patel had confirmed that the 13th edition of the mega event will be held on September 19 in the UAE due to postponement of tournament.
