National cricketer Anthony Adams has become the latest COVID-19 positive case among Guyanese cricketers. The Essequibian, an academy player, confirmed that he is asymptomatic and is currently in isolation. He disclosed that he had a mild cold and back pain, but that has passed, the left-arm spinner said in an invited comment.
Guyana is currently experiencing a rapid rise in COVID-19 cases. As a result, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) has taken a decision to stop all cricket activities, including the daily academy system wherein players meet and train on a daily basis.
The players will undergo testing and return home and conduct training via Zoom.
It was also disclosed that the academy system which was conducted at the La Bonne Intention (LBI) facility was set to be shifted to the Guyana National Stadium at Providence with the necessary approval already given.
Earlier, Guyanese cricketers Romario Shepherd and Trevon Griffith had tested positive for COVID-19. The 28-year-old Adams has been a consistent member on the local circuit, and has played first-class cricket for the Guyana Jaguars.
