There have been no new cases of Covid-19 in Sri Lanka's women squad but two members of the squad are still found having Covid-19 positive results.

According to highly placed sources in SLC, one player (Sugandhika Kumari) and one support staff member (Indrani Ariyarayni) were again found positive in the last PCR tests conducted on Thursday.   

It has been learnt now that more series of tests including the antigen tests for both will be conducted. 

"If the Covid affected persons have negative antigen tests, they can still fly to the country as per the new Civil avigation guidelines because there are less chances of spreading the virus," one of the SLC source, said. 

All players and support staff are still stranded in Harare after the Covid outbreak in the team, which resulted in the cancellation of the ICC World Cup qualifying tournament last week. 

"Efforts are being made at the highest level for their early return." 

There was a plan to send them in two different batches but now they all will be sent in a chartered flight of Sri Lankan airlines. 

"We are aware that they all have been nervous now and anxious to return home". 

"We got confirmation that our team has the delta variant. The delta variant differs from other variants because of its high infectivity. And the mortality and morbidity rates were higher as well."
