The West Indies team went on a tour of Pakistan last week. The team was to play a three-match T20 and One Day International series on Pakistan’s soil, but before that three players and a support staff member were found positive in the corona virus test. Despite this, the T20 International series started and then after two matches, the corona bomb exploded again. So far 6 players of the Caribbean team have been found corona infected during the tour of Pakistan.
Five more members of West Indies Cricket have been found positive in the Covid 19 Test. West Indies Cricket has confirmed this on Thursday, hours before the final match of the three-match T20 series against Pakistan.
In the statement, the board said, “Three players: wicket-keeper batsman Shai Hope, left-arm spinner Akil Hossein, all-rounder Justin Greaves, assistant coach Radi Estwick and team physician Dr Akshay Mansingh in the latest round of the Corona Test conducted by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). have been found positive.” Prior to him, a support staff member including Roston Chase, Sheldon Cattrell and Kyle Meyers was found to be corona infected.
Three players will not be able to play in the upcoming matches and all five persons will be isolated from the rest of the West Indies squad and will now be under the supervision and supervision provided by the medical authorities. They will remain in isolation for 10 days or until they come back negative in the corona virus test. So far six players have been ruled out of the tour due to Corona.
Apart from this, Devon Thomas (injury in the first T20I) has suffered a finger injury. In such a situation, the CWI and PCB officials will meet on Thursday morning and take a decision on whether the tour can continue or not?
