New Zealand bowler Lockie Ferguson was quarantined for the coronavirus check after complaining of a sore throat following a day of international play against Australia on Friday.
New Zealand Cricket said Ferguson had been put in isolation in a team hotel for the next 24 hours in compliance with prescribed safety protocols.
“As long as the test reports are obtained and confirmed, his return to the team will be decided,” NZC said in a statement.
Australia defeated New Zealand by 71 runs in the first ODI in front of 48,000 vacant seats at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Friday as a measure to avoid coronavirus outbreak from reaching Down Under shelter.
Australia pacemaker Kane Richardson was also quarantined after registering a sore throat on Thursday, but was cured of the virus and was able to reach the SCG teammates on Friday.
The second ODI will also be at the SCG on Sunday, with the sixth at Hobart on Saturday. Fans are forbidden from engaging in all matches.
