ngland all-rounder Moeen Ali has tested positive for Covid-19 upon arrival in Sri Lanka and must observe 10 days in self-isolation, effectively ruling him out of the First Test on January 14.  

An ECB statement revealed that Moeen had tested positive for coronavirus on the team’s round of testing on arrival at Hambantota Airport, in Sri Lanka’s south, for the start of the tour.

The rest of the touring party tested negative, but all-rounder Chris Woakes has been deemed a close contact of Moeen’s and will have to self-isolate and undergo further testing. He is expected to be in isolation for a minimum of seven days.
