Conway, Bracewell test Covid positive, Williamson rejoins

LONDON: New Zealand left-handed batter Devon Conway and all-rounder Michael Bracewell along with two support staff members have tested positive for Covid-19 and went into five days of isolation ahead of the third Test against England next week at Headingley.

Bracewell underwent the Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) as he faced symptoms a day after the conclusion of the second Test at Nottingham.

The rest of the touring party went through another round of testing upon their arrival in London with Conway also testing positive for Covid before going into isolation, confirmed New Zealand Cricket on Twitter.

New Zealand’s team physio Vijay Vallabh along with strength and conditioning coach Chris Donaldson have tested positive as well.

Meanwhile, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, who had earlier tested positive, has rejoined the team after serving a five-day period of isolation.

Bracewell made his debut at the Trent Bridge Test after Williamson was tested positive for Covid.
