Erstwhile Australia player Shane Warne, who is currently coaching London Spirit in the Hundred, is in isolation after testing positive for coronavirus. Warne wasn't feeling well earlier today before the Spirit's match versus Southern Brave at Lord's Cricket Ground.
Earlier in the inaugural edition of the Hundred, Trent Rockets head coach Andy Flower also tested positive for Covid-19 and didn't wear the coaching hat during the last three matches. Steven Mullaney who had contact with Andy is also in isolation to ward off the Covid threat.
Warne's team hasn't bagged a win yet with one of the match ending without any result. Spirit team will take on Souther Brave later today.
"London Spirit men's head coach Shane Warne will be absent from today's match against Southern Brave at Lord's," said a statement.
"After feeling unwell this morning, Shane returned a positive lateral flow test and will isolate from the squad and support staff whilst he awaits PCR results.
"A second member of the team management is self-isolating after also returning a positive test. No players have been impacted."
Leg-spin legend Warne claimed 708 wickets in a storied Test career which ended in 2007.
