If the checksum is corrupted then "the calculated value of the checksum at receiver" will not match and the packet will be discarded. For better understanding, you can read this: https://networkengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/44807/can-the-checksum-bits-be-corrupted#:~:text=If%20either%20the%20checksum%2C%20the,discarded%20(and%20later%20retransmitted).&text=However%20if%20you%20have%20a,starts%20to%20look%20sorely%20inadequate.
