Sam Curran has tested negative for Covid-19, allaying concerns that the virus had infiltrated the Ageas Bowl in England’s ‘bio-safe’ location.
Curran felt unwell on Wednesday evening after an at bat on the first night of the warm-up in England, and was ordered to isolate himself in his room at the hotel.
He was reviewed by medical staff and retested after having passed three since entering the ‘bubble’ of England. He has now got all-clear again and will join the group again this weekend in nets.
