The latest from England’s cricket team

England have received a boost on their tour of Sri Lanka with the news that a fresh round of testing for Covid-19 has yielded no further positive cases.

Moeen Ali was on Monday found to have the virus upon arrival in Hambantota, where he will quarantine for 10 days in a separate wing of the touring team’s hotel.

Chris Woakes was identified as a close contact of the off-spinning all-rounder and will continue to self-isolate despite the fast bowler being among a round of blanket negatives across players and staff – discounting Moeen.

“All PCR tests from yesterday are negative, except for Moeen Ali, and we can start controlled training this afternoon. We will have a third Covid test tomorrow,” an England and Wales Cricket Board spokesperson said on Wednesday.
