George Dockrell identified as potential Covid-19 positive

In line with protocols, the ICC Chief Medical Officer, opposition team and stadium staff have been notified

George Dockrell, one of Ireland’s key players, has been identified as potential positive for Covid-19 and is being managed in line with current local, national and ICC guidelines for the management of COVID-19. Cricket Ireland confirmed that the all-rounder’s symptoms are very mild, but team medical staff will manage his movements and interactions in line with tournament and current government protocols.

However, it must be noted that a positive COVID test does not impede Dockrell’s ability to play or train, but he will have to keep safe distance from the rest of the squad. 

He will travel separately to the squad on match and training days. In line with protocols, the ICC Chief Medical Officer, opposition team and stadium staff have been notified.

Dockrell has been excellent for Ireland lately and his unbeaten 39 against Scotland helped Ireland qualify for the Super 12 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Currently, Ireland are taking on Sri Lanka in their first encounter of the Super 12 and Dockrell is part of the playing XI.
