Chennai Super Kings regrets his tweet which was without the knowledge of the Management and in bad taste.

The IPL franchise said they were unaware of the tweet by Dr Madhu, while stressing it was in bad taste.
Dr. Madhu had been the team doctor for the franchise since the beginning of the T20 league, in 2008.
