Sam Curran has tested negative for Covid-19, easing concerns that the virus had infiltrated England’s ‘bio-secure’ venue at the Ageas Bowl.

Curran felt unwell on Wednesday night after batting on the first evening of England’s intra-squad warm-up and was instructed to self-isolate in his room at the on-site hotel.

He was assessed by medical staff and received a new test, having already passed three since arriving in the England ‘bubble’. He has now been given the all-clear again and will rejoin the group in nets over the weekend.
