35 players test negative for COVID-19

35 national cricketers who were subjected to PCR Tests yesterday, have tested negative for Covid-19 along with the Coaching Staff, Net Bowlers, and the HPC Staff, the Sri Lanka Cricket said.

The players were part of the provisional squad who were preparing to take part in the Tour of West Indies.

However, training was halted last week, following Head Coach Mickey Arthur and Sri Lanka Player Lahiru Thirimanne tested Positive for Covid-19.

The players will return to action today with a ‘Fitness Test’ scheduled to ascertain their fitness levels.

The squad will commence training on February 16 to take part in the Tour of West Indies, which is under discussion.

Lahiru Thirimanne and Coach Mickey Arthur, who tested positive, are still undergoing treatment.
