England men’s head coach tests positive for Covid-19 in Melbourne

England men’s head coach Chris Silverwood has tested positive for Covid-19 in Melbourne.

As being reported, the 46-year-old is asymptomatic and will stay in isolation until 8 January.

Silverwood is fully vaccinated and has already been isolated in Melbourne since Thursday after a member of his family returned a positive test.

England’s head coach will miss the fourth Ashes Test in Sydney which begins on Wednesday, but he is expected to return in time for the fifth Test in Hobart.

Meanwhile, on Sunday England’s practice at the Sydney Cricket Ground was disrupted after learning a local net bowler had tested positive for Covid-19.

English players reportedly completed practice using their own bowlers and coaching staff, and have undergone another round of routine PCR tests.

In a statement, Cricket Australia said: “Earlier today, the net bowlers provided for England’s training session were withdrawn, following two of the bowlers returning positive Covid tests as part of Cricket Australia’s pre-entry screening protocols.

“Both bowlers have recently recovered from Covid infections and therefore did not pose any risk to the England playing group.”

On the other hand, the plans to add former England one-day skipper Adam Hollioake to their coaching team had to be deferred after a close contact of his tested positive.
