Coach Andrew McDonald tests positive for Covid

Andrew McDonald will miss the first game of Australia’s multi-format tour to Sri Lanka after testing positive to Covid-19.

The match between Sri Lanka and Australia in Colombo on June 7 was supposed to be McDonald’s first since his appointment to the head coaching role full-time, but instead he’ll watch from isolation as assistant Michael Di Venuto takes the reins.

McDonald is set to join the team in Colombo ahead of the second T20 on June 8.

A Cricket Australia spokesperson told News Corp that McDonald was asymptomatic as he began his isolation period in Melbourne.

The Aussies are spending more than a month touring Sri Lanka, where they’ll face the locals in three T20Is, five ODIs and two Test matches.

Led by captain Pat Cummins, Australia will assemble in Colombo on Thursday.
