Two Sri Lanka white ball cricketers, who were training for the upcoming West Indies tour, have tested positive for COVID-19, Cricket Age reliably learns.
“Both the players were in the training pool. They will be transferred to Covid treatment facilities” a top SLC official told Cricket Age.
Sri Lanka are set to tour the Caribbean following their home series against England. The Islanders will play two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is against the West Indies in February-March 2021. The Test series will be part of the ICC World Test Championship and the series will be played for the Sobers-Tissera Trophy.
“They were not part of the bio secure bubble, so have not come into direct contact with other cricketers, who are participating in the ongoing test series” the official added further.
