All 152 people involved in the ongoing series between Australia and hosts West Indies returned negative Covid-19 tests on Friday, prompting the two boards to agree to the resumption

The second one-day international between West Indies and Australia which was suspended on Thursday because of a positive test for Covid-19, will resume on Saturday, Cricket West Indies announced.

All 152 people involved in the ongoing series returned negative Covid-19 tests on Friday, prompting the two boards to agree to the resumption.

"CWI is pleased to announce that the ODI series will resume on Saturday and conclude on Monday," the home board said in a statement.

Thursday's game at Kensington Oval was called off at the last minute, after the toss, when a non-playing member of the West Indies team tested positive for the virus.

The match will resume on Saturday, with Australia having won the toss and elected to bat at Kensington Oval.

"It has been a challenging two days and we have worked very swiftly and safely, following all the established medical protocols, to make sure that all necessary precautions are in place to ensure that we can go ahead to resume play safely," said CWI President Ricky Skerritt.
