Ben Foakes out of third Test after testing positive for Covid-19


England wicketkeeper Ben Foakes has been ruled out of the final two days of the third Test against New Zealand after testing positive for Covid-19.

29 year old Foakes did not keep wicket on day three at Headingley on Saturday because of a stiff back with Jonny Bairstow taking the gloves in his place.

England say after further medical assessment he has tested positive for coronavirus.
Kent’s Sam Billings will now replace Foakes as a Covid-19 substitute.
