Australian fast bowler Kane Richardson has been quarantined after being tested for coronavirus as he arrived home from South Africa.
Kane Richardson complained of a sore throat a day before the match between Australia and New Zealand. He was tested for the COVID-19 and the results are awaited.
He has been withdrawn from today’s (Friday) game and was replaced by Sean Abbott.
Australian Cricket Board said in a statement, “Our medical staff is treating this a typical throat infection but we are following Australian Government protocols that require us to keep Kane away from other members of the squad and perform the appropriate tests given he has returned from international travel in the last 14 days.”
