Rawlins and Sussex return home
Delray Rawlins and his Sussex County Cricket Club team-mates are returning to England from Cape Town, South Africa, after cutting short their pre-season tour because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
The decision to end the trip early has been made in light of the increasing global travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
None of the touring party are displaying symptoms associated with the virus, read a report on the Sussex website.
Keith Greenfield, the Sussex Cricket performance director, said: We have been monitoring the fast-moving situation regarding Coronavirus prior to and during the tour and, with travel restrictions increasing, we’ve made the decision to return to the UK at the earliest opportunity.
“This is obviously disappointing, but – as ever – the wellbeing of our players and staff is our number one priority.”
