Second ODI between WI, Aus suspended due to Covid-19

The second one-day international between West Indies and Australia in Barbados was suspended minutes before the start on Thursday after a member of the West Indies staff returned positive for Covid-19.

Just after the toss, the confirmation of suspension was made.

“A decision on when the match will be replayed will be made at a later date once all the tests are confirmed,” West Indies Cricket said in a statement.

Although the teams are staying on separate floors of their hotels during the tour however, they shared the same chartered plane from Saint Lucia, which hosted the first ODI, to Barbados last Saturday, Cricket Australia’s (CA) said.

Meanwhile, CA also said that the third ODI on Saturday was in “considerable doubt”.

Meanwhile, Australia’s T20 tour of Bangladesh was also in doubt, CA added.
