The ECB have just released a statement stating that Phil Whitticase, match referee for the England-Sri Lanka T20I series has tested positive for Covid-19 - he is asymptomatic and is reported as being well.

However, 5 match officials (we can assume Burns, Wharf, Millns and Saggers - not sure who else unless Redfern?) will now have to isolate until July 7th. Alternative officials will now have to be appointed ahead of the ODI series.

Question is who? Richard Illingworth wasn’t appointed in the first place which suggests he’s unavailable. Could we see Gough & Kettleborough on field for all and either Llong or Gould take up the duties?
