WI vs Aus - 2nd ODI, Bridgetown
Second ODI postponed after positive COVID case
Barbodos: The second One-day International between West Indies and Australia was postponed minutes before the start at the Kensington Oval after a non-playing staff of the home side tested positive for COVID-19.
Cricket West Indies (CWI) has said that all the members of the two teams, match officials and TV crew will remain in isolation in their hotel rooms and be tested before a decision is taken on replaying the match at a later date.
The match was about to begin as the toss had taken place and Australia had handed right-arm fast bowler Riley Meredith a debut when report of the positive test came in.
Australia, after losing the T20I series 2-3, had come back strongly in the opening ODI, crushing West Indies by 133 runs under D/L Method at the same venue on July 20.
