Moeen Ali back in the bubble after completing the COVID test | Cricket News

GALLE: England all-rounder Moeen Ali entered the team’s bio-secure bubble on Saturday after completing two COVID-19 tests, joining his friends after spending 13 days in quarantine.
Ali, 33, tested positive for COVID-19 with mild symptoms upon arrival in Sri Lanka and was isolated from the rest of the tour.
It was originally slated to be in quarantine for 10 days, which was later extended for three days following reservations from the Sri Lankan government over the new UK strain of the deadly virus.
“It’s great to have Mo (Ali) back,” Sam Curran said after strains on Day 3 of the ongoing opening test.
“When we entered the locker room (at tea) we saw Mo and there were smiles on everyone’s faces. He’s obviously had a very difficult week and no one wants to step into the situation he was in.
Fortunately, he succeeded. We are all very excited to see him back in the squad to play cricket again because we all know how great he is and how he is around.
“The guys are really happy. I hope that doesn’t happen to anyone else, because nobody wants the players to leave the squad and isolate themselves for a few weeks,” he added.
