Sri Lanka is currently on a limited-overs tour in the United Kingdom (UK). They recently played England in a three-match Twenty20 International series. On Tuesday, June 29, at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street, England, Sri Lanka will face off in three One Day Internationals.

The T20I series between the two countries resulted in a 3-0 victory for England. However, both cricket teams have been handed a significant setback after referee Phil Whitticase tested positive for Covid-19. The International Cricket Council (ICC) assigned him to officiate for England's three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka. Whitticase appears to be in good health and asymptomatic, according to the reports.

According to UK government standards, the match-referee will serve a mandatory ten-day quarantine period beginning June 25 and will be able to come out of self-isolation after returning adverse reports. To corroborate the news, the England and Wales Board (ECB) issued an official statement. According to the information, the match referee had a tight relationship with seven match officials and anti-corruption unit members.

Whitticase also contacted five members who were due to officiate in the first One Day International between the two sides. Because there's a potential they'll test positive for Covid-19, all five members have been ordered to isolate themselves for ten days (until July 7).

Fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as the ODI series will be unaffected by the match-positive referee's test. Both teams have been confirmed as unaffected by the virus, and the series will go as planned.
