Six members of the Surrey County Cricket Club have been advised to self-isolate as a safety measure against the COVID-19 outbreak.
Six players in the Surrey County Cricket Club had been in close proximity to one another that’s why they had been advised to self-isolate first. Though not all of them show symptoms of the COVID-19, they were still asked to stay at home as a safety precaution against the global pandemic.
So far, the players are not yet named by the Surrey administration. However, they stated that the rest of the squad will continue to train in the marquee, gym, and Ken Barrington Centre at The Kia Oval.
‘The cancellation of England’s tour of Sri Lanka and Jason Roy’s return from the Pakistan Super League means Sam Curran, Ben Foakes, Ollie Pope and Roy will rejoin the squad for training from next week’, says Surrey CCC on their press release.
Despite the cancellation of their pre-season trip to Dubai, Surrey continues to prepare for their pre-season fixtures. This includes their upcoming match against Sussex which is expected to start on April 2.
