All members of the West Indies squad tested negative in the first COVID-19 tests.

Dario Barthley, media manager of West Indies, confirmed the news, saying that everyone is in a healthy state at this moment.

Barthley said, “Everyone in the camp has been fit and fine. We all are tested negative in the first COVID-19 test in Bangladesh.”

We’ll undergo the second Covid-19 test on Thursday after which the side will start practice, he added.

The second COVID-19 test however was supposed to be conducted on Tuesday but that was deferred for two days. The third test will be on the seventh day when they will end their mandatory quarantine.

In the midst of the series, they will undergo the COVID-19 test several times as the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) emphasized more testing to keep things under control.

The West Indies will start their mission with an inter-squad one-day warm-up game at BKSP on January 18.

The first ODI of the three-match series is on January 20 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. The second ODI is on January 22 at the same venue and the third and final ODI of the series will be held on January 25 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.
