Caribbean leg spinner Hayden Walsh has tested positive for coronavirus. The officials of West Indies Cricket team informed this matter on Thursday saying he will miss upcoming ODI series.
Cricket West Indies (CWI) said the 25-year-old leg spinner will take a period of self-isolation.
CWI said in a statement, " Walsh first returned a negative test result on arrival into Dhaka on the weekend, and then had a positive return on his test in Dhaka yesterday." All other members of the squad returned second negative COVID-19 tests, after undergoing four tests within the last 11 days.
The three-match ODI series between Bangladesh and West Indies will start on 20th January.
West Indies arrived in the city without their skipper Jason Holder, Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran.
Bangladesh has recorded more than 500,000 pandemic cases but its fatality rate has been one of the world's lowest.
