SL pacer Fernando tests negative for Covid-19 ahead of 3rd ODI vs Bangladesh

Sri Lanka pacer Shiran Fernando, who had tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of first ODI against Bangladesh on Sunday, has finally returned negative after the third round of RT-PCR test.

Fernando had tested positive ahead of first ODI along with pace bowler Isuru Udana and coach Chaminda Vaas however, while the latter two tested negative results after second round of tests, Fernando had still returned positive.

“Fernando tested corona negative [in the last test],” Bangladesh’s team spokesperson Rabeed Imam was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

Earlier, Fernando hadn’t attended the practice session on Wednesday afternoon at Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Academy premises.

Significantly, Bangladesh, who have already sealed the series after beating the tourists in the first two ODIs, will look for a white-wash in the third and final affair on Friday.
