Curran tests negative for coronavirus

London (Agencies): England all-rounder Sam Curran has tested negative for the coronavirus, the England and Wales Cricket Board said Friday.

Curran went into self-isolation in his room at the on-site hotel on Thursday after overnight illness — which included diarrhoea and sickness — forced him out of England’s ongoing intra-squad match at the Ageas Bowl after he had batted on the first day of the game. That in turn raised fears COVID-19 might have found its way into England’s bios-secure training camp, potentially jeopardising next week’s first Test between England and the West Indies at Hampshire’s headquarters — a match that is set to mark the return of international cricket from lockdown.
