English cricket is crossing its fingers after all-rounder Sam Curran went into self-isolation and underwent a Covid-19 test following a bout of vomiting and diarrhea inside the team bubble at the Ageas Bowl.

Curran’s health is said to have improved, but a positive result today would jeopardise England’s preparations for next week’s first Test against West Indies, who have been notified of the development.

England vs WestIndies : Sam Curran in self-isolation
England all-rounder Sam Curran on Thursday underwent COVID-19 test after he got ill and is currently self-isolating in his hotel room at the Ageas Bowl, ruling him out of the remainder of the intra-squad warm-up match here.
“England all-rounder Sam Curran has had sickness and diarrhea overnight. He is feeling better this afternoon and has been self-isolating in his room at the Ageas Bowl. He will play no further part in the practice match,” the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said in a statement.

The ECB were tight-lipped about the wider ramifications of a positive result, though Curran himself would begin seven days of quarantine, while the next round of testing – currently scheduled for Sunday – would almost certainly be brought forward.

“He has been monitored by the team doctor throughout and was tested for COVID-19 earlier today,” the statement said, without mentioning when the result will be available.
Curran had scored 15 not out on the first day of England’s intra-squad warm-up match.
The warm-up match is a part of England’s preparation for the three-match Test series against the West Indies beginning here on July 8.
The Test series will mark the resumption of international cricket after the coronavirus-forced hiatus.
