The club have been in constant dialogue with Cricket Zimbabwe, whilst monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19. It has been agreed by all parties that the best course of action is to return the squad to the UK at the earliest available opportunity.

Durham Cricket can confirm that no members of the squad or coaching staff have shown any symptoms related to COVID-19 at this time.

Durham Director of Cricket, Marcus North, said “The health and safety of our players coaches and staff is the main consideration in any decision we make.

“Due to the potential travel disruption and uncertainty around the ongoing situation it is in the best interest of everyone to bring the traveling party back to the UK at this time.

“We would like to thank Cricket Zimbabwe for their support and guidance and we look forward to having everyone home safe and well in the next few days”

Durham Cricket continue to monitor the situation from Emirates Riverside and will keep everyone updated as to any developments at the club and with regards to the coming season.
