New Zealand right-arm paceman Lockie Ferguson was told to remain in isolation for 24 hours after reporting sore throat at the conclusion of the first ODI between New Zealand and Australia amidst empty stands at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Ferguson was confined to the team hotel, away from his teammates until the screening process was completed. "Once the test results are received and diagnosed, his return to the team can be determined," a statement from New Zealand Cricket read.
Fortunately, Ferguson’s tests for coronavirus returned negative and he will now fly back to New Zealand tomorrow. This development comes after Australia’s Kane Richardson also had to undergo a test, which came out negative.
