CPL 2021: Carlos Braithwaite tests negative, isolating after COVID-19 case on flight from UK – West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite is in doubt for Jamaica Tallawahs opening game of the upcoming Caribbean Premier League (CPL) after being forced into isolation due to a positive COVID-19 case on the flight from the UK.

Brathwaite had travelled from Manchester to Basseterre ahead of the CPL after leading Manchester Originals in the ECB’s inaugural edition of the Hundred. A fellow passenger ended up testing positive for Covid-19 and as a result, Windies all-rounder was forced to enter isolation.

“The tournament is going to be interesting. I don’t think it will be an undefeated run to the finals as Trinidad had last year. I think it will be a little closer. I think all the teams are more evenly matched,” said Brathwaite.
