Hayden Walsh Jr tests positive for COVID-19 in Bangladesh


    Hayden Walsh Jr has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the upcoming three-match ODI series against Bangladesh to undergo a period of self-isolation.

    Cricket West Indies says the leg-spinner, who is asymptomatic, first returned a negative test result on arrival into Bangladesh on the weekend.

    The positive result came from PCR tests administered in Bangladesh on January 13th, and was verified by a second positive test today.

    The West Indies touring squad has been in individual isolation since arriving in Bangladesh and CWI says there has been no contact between squad members.

    In accordance with the established medical protocols, Walsh remains isolated from the West Indies squad and is now under the care and supervision of the Team Physician, Dr Praimanand Singh.

    He will remain in isolation until he returns two negative PCR test results.

    The three-match ODI Series starts on Wednesday, January 20th.
