Sri Lanka head coach Micky Arthur and batsman Lahiru Thirimanne have tested positive for COVID-19.

"They were detected following PCR Tests carried out yesterday (02nd February) for the entire 36-member squad, along with the Coaching Staff, Net Bowlers, and the HPC Staff.

"Immediately upon identification, both Mickey Arthur and Lahiru Thirimanne have been directed to follow the Government's health protocol laid out on Covid - 19," said a statement from Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).

The tests were part of those conducted for the provisional squad that is set to tour West Indies, with matches scheduled to commence from February 20.

However, SLC has cited the recent developments as a cause for a possible reschedule. "Considering the current situation, SLC is exploring the possibility of rescheduling the Tour of West Indies, which was scheduled to commence on 20th February 2021.

"In the meantime, Sri Lanka Cricket will continue with normal operations, adhering to the stipulated Health Protocols in all its centers," said the statement.
