England Cricketer Sam Curran Tests Negative For COVID-19

England all-rounder Sam Curran was advised to stay in isolation when he suddenly felt unwell. Read below to know more.

England all-rounder Sam Curran went into self-isolation in his hotel room on Thursday after an overnight illness. Sam experienced sickness and diarrhoea which forced him out of England’s on-going intra-squad match. He was playing for Jos Buttler’s team at the Ageas Bowl on the first day of the game. After the sudden illness, Sam Curran was tested for the novel coronavirus.

However, on Friday, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced that the all-rounder has tested negative for the coronavirus. Curran’s overnight health issue raised concerns that COVID-19 might have found its way into England’s bio-secure training camp, potentially risking the first Test match between England and West Indies at Hampshire’s headquarters. This match will mark the return of international cricket post the lockdown.

Surrey’s 22-year-old star was tested by medical professionals and received a new test, having already passed three since landing in England ‘bubble’. Having been declared free of the virus, Curran will rejoin the England squad for net sessions over the weekend. 

A statement from ECB read, “England’s Sam Curran has tested negative following his COVID-19 test from Thursday.”

It further read, “The Surrey all-rounder, who had a sickness bug has recovered and is currently missing the intra-group three-day match, which ends today, has been self-isolating in his room at the Ageas Bowl. He will now return to training over the next 24-48 hours and will be closely monitored by the team doctor. “

Curran will later receive a further COVID-19 test on Sunday with the rest of the playing and management group.

ECB hasn’t announced the squad to take on West Indies yet but they are due on Saturday.
