All players test negative for coronavirus ahead of CPL 2020

All cricketers, officials and administrators who will be involved with the upcoming Caribbean Premier League have tested negative for the coronavirus and will remain in a 14-day quarantine before they can resume training. The tests were carried out after all 162 players landed in Trinidad and Tobago, the venue of all CPL matches this year.

If any player is found positive in the subsequent tests, they will be removed from the team hotel and will be placed in further isolation.

Michael Hall, the Tournament Operations Director of the CPL stated, “It has been a colossal effort by all involved to get everyone safely into Trinidad & Tobago and we would like to thank everyone for their hard work and diligence. Our main priority is the health and wellbeing of all those involved in CPL and the wider population in the host country, to have got through this first step without any cases is encouraging news, but we will remain vigilant.”

The league will begin from August 18 and will see 33 games being played at two grounds in Trinidad. The final is scheduled for September 10.

This postgraduate in English Literature from Kolkata has taken on the tough task of limiting the mystic world of cricket to a few hundred words. A firm believer that Kohli is a wizard with the willow, she spends her time awaiting the next Indian spring triumph.
