London/IBNS: English cricketer David Willey has tested positive for Novel Coronavirus or Covid-19.

Willey's wife has also tested positive for the virus.

Willey, who plays for Yorkshire County Cricket Club, will now be unavailable for the remaining matches in the league stage of T20 Blast.

Matthew Fisher, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Josh Poysden, who had come in contact with Willey, have also been quarantined.

Thus the Yorkshire CCC will miss four players in the upcoming matches.

Kunwar Bansil, the Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s lead physiotherapist said, "Although it is disappointing that we will be without four key players, we have a duty of care to the wider squad and others.

"The health and well-being of the players and support staff is the Club’s primary responsibility, as well as protecting the opposition, the integrity of the competition and playing our part in keeping the wider community safe."
