Windies players breach COVID protocols in New Zealand

The West Indies could find themselves in trouble with New Zealand Cricket (NZC) authorities as they were reportedly in breach of the strict protocols within their managed isolation facility in Christchurch.

According to a statement on Tuesday from NZC, it was made aware that some members of the West Indies team compromised bubble integrity by sharing food, and socializing in hallways.

It went on to say that there is no evidence, or suggestion, that any members of the touring party left the facility, or that any unauthorized persons accessed the facility.

The statement went on to say that NZC is supportive of the Ministry of Health and government position.

It concluded that NZC will continue working with the West Indies team and management, and relevant government agencies to ensure there is no repeat of these violations.

The West Indies squad had their final COVID-19 tests on Tuesday and, results permitting, are scheduled to leave managed isolation on Friday and travel to Queenstown ahead of two matches against New Zealand “A”.
