What did david wiley say
Tweeting left-handed batsman David Wiley wrote, “Thanks for all the messages. My wife and I have been found positive in the Corona Virus Test. Sad to miss the remaining matches. More than that. The sad situation is that I came into contact with 3 other players (before we had symptoms), meaning they are at risk and not even available. “
Thank you for all the kind messages. My wife & I received positive COVID test results. Gutted to be missing the remaining games. Even more devastated that having been in contact with the other 3 lads Sat morning (before we had symptoms) means they’re at risk & unavailable too. https://t.co/mP1pZAiX1C
