Meanwhile, Terry Svenson, the CEO of Queensland Cricket, lauded Cricket Australia for implementing the preparations on this urgent basis.
“The health and safety of our players and coaches and support staff, and their families, is of paramount importance. By making a decisive call on tonight’s game, we can work as efficiently as possible to support those players who have returned a positive rapid antigen test and assist the replacement players coming into the squad,” said Svenson.
“It also means that fans who are attending the matches or were intending to do, can establish their options as soon as they are able,” he stated.
“We are providing all the support we can to players, staff, and their families. I’d like to thank the medical and off-field teams at both Queensland Cricket and Cricket Australia for their ongoing guidance and support,” Svenson added.
