In a newly released statement, Cricket West Indies (CWI) “announced that all 152 persons tested for COVID-19 on Thursday evening returned negative results, following the suspension of Thursday’s second CG Insurance One-Day International (ODI) before a ball was bowled at Kensington Oval, Barbados.”
The statement further noted, “All members of the West Indies and Australia teams and coaching staff, as well as match officials, event staff and TV production crew were tested back at the hotel with everyone being in room isolation since.”
CWI will now await directives from the Ministry of Health officials in Barbados and will hold meetings with Cricket Australia (CA), the Barbados Cricket Association, and Government of Barbados officials.
The second one-day international between West Indies and Australia was called to a halt minutes before the scheduled start in Barbados due to a positive COVID-19 test result from a non-playing member of the West Indies squad.
Australia beat West Indies by 133 runs in the rain-hit first one-day international in Barbados on Tuesday.
