West Indian coach Phil Simmons is in short-term isolation after being allowed to attend his stepfather’s funeral and has since been tested twice negative for coronavirus, the team leaders said on Sunday.

Before the start of their three-test tour in England, Simmons had already asked for permission to leave the team’s bio-secure bubble at Old Trafford in Manchester.

The first test of three against England is underway in Southampton, another bio-secure location, on July 8.
