The England allrounder, David Willey, has tested positive for coronavirus. Yorkshire announced that David Willey, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Josh Poysden and Matthew Fisher would miss their remaining Vitality Blast group games after one of them had tested positive.
David Willey revealed on Twitter that he was the player who had contracted the COVID-19.
Willey tweeted that “Thank you for all the kind messages,” “My wife and I received positive coronavirus test results. Gutted to be missing the remaining games. Even more devastated that having been in contact with the other 3 lads Sat morning (before we had symptoms) means they re at risk and unavailable too.”
The 4 players had been withdrawn from Yorkshire`s squad to play Lancashire on Monday after Willey s wife had developed symptoms, and waited in the car park in anticipation of Willey s own test coming back negative which would have cleared them to play after the four players had come into contact away from the rest of the squad.
