Every member of the English party on tour in Sri Lanka for a series of two tests received the green light after performing secondary COVID-19 tests, but the drama is not over yet.
They were all forced to retest after all-rounder Moeen Ali tested positive in the party’s first round of testing when he landed in Sri Lanka.
And while no one tests positive – including fast bowler Chris Woakes, who shared a car with Ali at Heathrow Airport – each of the tourists are due for a third test tomorrow.
Ali isolates himself for 10 days and Woakes a week.
BBC Sport also reports that Sri Lanka, who have just lost both matches in their two-test streak against South Africa in South Africa, will not face a 10-day quarantine period upon returning home. .
Both matches of the two-test series between Sri Lanka and England will be played in Galle, with the first set starting on January 14 and the second on January 22.
