Non-playing WI team member tests positive for COVID-19

A non-playing member of West Indies tested positive for COVID-19 and the second One-day International cricket match against Australia was postponed before a ball was bowled.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) said this decision was taken after the toss at Kensington Oval, once the result was known.

“The established COVID-19 protocols stipulate that all members of both teams and match officials will return immediately to the team hotel and will be re-tested later today,” CWI chief executive Johnny Grave said.

“They will remain in isolation in their hotel rooms until their PCR test results are returned. A decision on when the match will be replayed will be made at a later date once all the test results are confirmed.”

The Cricket Australia website earlier broke the news and both teams immediately returned to their respective dressing rooms. (AR)
