“YCCC can confirm that Matthew Fisher, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Josh Poysden and David Willey will be unavailable for the remaining Vitality Blast group matches after a positive COVID test was received #OneRose,” Yorkshire tweeted.

Later, Willey also took to his social media handle and confirmed that he and his wife Carolynne Poole had both received positive COVID-19 test results.

“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,” he tweeted.

As per the COVID-19 guidelines, Willey will now self-solate himself for a period of 14 days and will miss the final three group-stage games.

He will now be available for the Vitality Blast quarter-finals on October 1 if Yorkshire manage to make it to the knockouts .

Willey was left out of the England squad for the three-match ODI series against Australia which the home side went on to lose by 1-2 following a three-wicket defeat in the final match in Manchester on Wednesday.
