BLACKCAPS batter Devon Conway has tested positive for Covid-19 and has begun five days of isolation.
Conway undertook a PCR test on arrival in London on Wednesday evening in preparation for a team activity.
He joins all-rounder Michael Bracewell and support staff personnel Vijay Vallabh (physio) and Chris Donaldson (strength & conditioning) as members of the tour party to have tested positive on Wednesday.
The three will travel separately from the team to Leeds on Sunday and providing they recover as expected will be able to join the team for training at Headingley on Tuesday, ahead of Thursday’s final Test.
The rest of the touring party have returned negative results and will continue following the tour health protocols of symptom reporting and subsequent testing if required.
No replacements player are being sought at this stage.
