A specialist batting coach of the Sri Lanka Cricket team who returned to the country after the England tour, has been diagnosed with COVID infection, a senior official of the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said.
The SLC team’s batting coach, a former Zimbabwean all-rounder, is a well-known figure. He was diagnosed with symptoms and later underwent a PCR test. He was referred to a health examination yesterday (07) and, according to the results received today, he was found infected with COVID-19.
Since all the players on the tour have been in a bio-security bubble since day one, it would not be a problem for the coach to become infected, an SLS official said.
