Cricket West Indies (CWI) on Friday (July 23) was happy to announce that all 152 individuals concerned with the series between West Indies and Australia have been tested negative for COVID-19.
Each group and the match officers returned to their resort and were retested. So have been occasional workers and the TV manufacturing crew. On Thursday evening the results of all the individuals isolated in the bubble came out negative.
“CWI has been working closely with Local Ministries of Health to operate strict bio-secure bubbles successfully during the past year, and will continue to prioritize the health, safety and wellbeing for all concerned,” stated a Cricket West Indies release.
The second match of the three match ODI series at Kensington Oval was suspended just after the toss when an unnamed non-playing member of the West Indies squad tested positive for COVID-19.
CWI also stated that discussions are going to be held with Cricket Australia, the Barbados authorities and well being officers about resuming the three-match sequence. The third ODI was scheduled for Saturday which is most likely to be postponed like the second one dayer.
“Following confirmation from the Ministry of Health officials in Barbados that all the results are negative, CWI will now hold meetings with Cricket Australia (CA), the Barbados Cricket Association, and Government of Barbados officials to agree when the resumption of the CG Insurance ODI Series at Kensington Oval can begin.”
