Windies and Aussies to play Saturday and Monday

West Indies and Australia will play the final two One-day Internationals in their current series on Saturday and Monday at Kensington Oval.

NATIONSPORT understands that Cricket West Indies and Cricket Australia reached agreement over the end of the Tour after negotiations were held on Friday evening.

The second ODI, which was abruptly suspended on Thursday because of a positive COVID-19 case in the West Indies camp, will be completed, after Australia won the toss and chose to bat.

The third ODI, scheduled for Saturday at the same venue, will be played two days later.

This followed confirmation from Minister of Health & Wellness Jeffrey Bostic that tests of more than 150 people conducted by the Best-Dos Santos Public Health Laboratory all came back negative.

It included players, team support staff, match officials, event staff, TV broadcast crew and hotel staff.

The second ODI halted this past Thursday without a ball being bowled, shortly after the toss was spun.

CWI identified “a non-playing member of the West Indies staff” tested positive for the viral illness and NATIONSPORT understands that the individual has since been transported to the government isolation facility at Harrison Point in St Lucy for medical care.
