New Zealand batsman Finn Allen has been found corona positive after reaching Bangladesh. New Zealand Cricket confirmed this on Tuesday. Allen was fine before leaving for England where he was representing Birmingham Phoenix at The Hundred but tested positive after reaching Dhaka. According to the statement, despite taking both the vaccines, he has symptoms.
New Zealand manager Mike Sendley said, ‘It is very unfortunate for the Finn. He is feeling comfortable at the moment and is hopeful that he will get well soon. Bangladesh cricket officials have been extremely professional in their response and we are grateful to them for that. They are taking the matter very seriously.
The other teammates will be in isolation in their respective rooms for three days as soon as they reach Dhaka. A decision regarding the availability and replacement of Allen will be taken in the coming time. After the isolation period, he will be allowed to join the team after his continuous negative test comes. New Zealand have to play a five-match T20I series with Bangladesh in Dhaka.
