“Following PCR tests administered on Wednesday, January 13, Cricket West Indies (CWI) can confirm that Hayden Walsh Jr has tested positive for COVID-19 and will now undergo a period of self-isolation,” Cricket West Indies said in a statement on Thursday.
“Walsh will remain in isolation until he returns two negative PCR test results and therefore is unavailable to play in the upcoming three-match ODI series against Bangladesh,” it added.
The board said that no primary contact to Walsh has been established as the West Indies touring squad has remained in individual isolation since their arrival.
However, the series will go ahead as scheduled since all other members of the touring party have returned two negative tests after undergoing a total of four tests in the last 11 days. (UNI)
