Australian pace bowler Kane Richardson underwent test for coronavirus after he arrived home from South Africa with a sore throat.
The bowler on the right arm has withdrawn from Friday’s game against New Zealand, replaced by Sean Abbott because he is isolated to receive the corona virus.
The 29-year-old man informed the team doctor on Thursday evening about his sore throat, which was mild. He was sent home to test.
“Our medical staff are 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,” a Cricket Australia spokesperson said in a statement.
