Informing the same, New Zealand manager Mike Sandle said, “It’s really unfortunate for Finn. He’s comfortable at the moment and hopefully, he’ll recover quickly; test negative, and be cleared and approved for discharge as soon as possible. The Bangladesh cricket authorities have been extremely professional in their response and we’re grateful to them for that. They’re treating the matter very seriously.”
