Covid-19 positive players can play at T20 WC



This year’s T20 World Cup in Australia, will see a considerably more relaxed approach with the ICC confirming players who test positive to COVID-19 will be permitted to play T20 World Cup matches.

The Australian Federal Government’s mandatory isolation requirements for those who contract COVID-19 ended just in time for the beginning of the preliminary stage of the tournament getting underway on Sunday.

According to a report on, the ICC says there will be no mandatory testing during the tournament and no isolation period if a player gets COVID-19, instead putting the onus on team doctors “to assess whether it is appropriate” for players to compete if they get COVID-19.

Teams will however be permitted to make squad changes should a player return a positive PCR test, with the infected player then allowed to return to the squad upon returning a negative test.
