David Willey, 3 others to miss Vitality Blast after 1 player tested COVID19 positive

Yorkshire’s David Willey, Matthew Fisher, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Josh Poysden will be missing the rest of Vitality Blast series after one player among the four had tested positive for coronavirus.

The players were tested on Tuesday and they got their result on Wednesday. While three players had tested negative, they will also undergo 14-day quarantine, thereby, missing the series.

A statement on Yorkshire’s official website read: “The four players were deemed to be in close contact on Saturday separate to the squad and away from a COVID secure environment.

“One player has had a positive test returned and as all four players were deemed to be in close contact, all four have been advised to self-isolate for 14 days, as per COVID guidelines.”

Kunwar Bansil, Yorkshire’s lead physiotherapist, added: “Although it is disappointing that we will be without four key players, we have a duty of care to the wider squad and others.

“The health and well-being of the players and support staff is the Club’s primary responsibility, as well as protecting the opposition, the integrity of the competition and playing our part in keeping the wider community safe.”
