England tour of Sri Lanka-Sam Curran arrives in Sri Lanka: The England team is currently in Sri Lanka but have to face an anxious wait to discover if coronavirus is sweeping through the squad after Moeen Ali tested positive just hours after arriving at the start of two months touring Asia.
However, Sam Curran, who tested negative meanwhile took to his Twitter to share some amazing scenic pictures from his hotel room.

Moeen now faces 10 days in quarantine up to Jan 13 and Chris Woakes is in self-isolation for seven days as a close contact after the two shared a car from their homes in Birmingham to the airport on Saturday.
If Woakes tests negative, England will have to decide if he has had enough time to acclimatise to tough conditions. If not, then Sam Curran is his likely replacement.
