Irish international Curtis Campher has been called up to the Ireland Wolves tour to Namibia after three players test positive for COVID-19 on the eve of the squad’s departure
The squad departed this morning after several last-minute decisions had to be made about the squad composition in the light of three players testing positive during their last round of pre-departure tests.
The key decisions made were:
Ross Adair has had to withdraw from the tour, with Curtis Campher called up to join the squad;
Ruhan Pretorius was called up as cover as well, but after testing positive he will have a delayed departure date and join the squad prior to the 50-over matches; and
Fionn Hand will also have a delayed departure date and join the squad prior to the 50-over matches.
Munster Cricket General Manager had the following to say on the inclusion Munster Reds star Curtis Campher:
“Delighted to see so many Munster Reds players on the plane to show what they can do! All their hard work has paid off and hopefully just a stepping stone in their careers.”
