Tahlia McGrath featuring for Australia in gold medal match despite Covid-19 positive result

Birmingham, Aug 7, 2022- Australia all-rounder Tahlia McGrath, despite testing positive for Covid-19 and experiencing mild symptoms, has been allowed to feature in the side’s gold medal match against India at Edgbaston on Sunday.

Former Australia cricketer Lisa Sthalekar had commented on-air that the toss for gold medal match was delayed by almost 15 minutes because Tahlia had tested positive for Covid-19 & Australia had to inform the Indian team.

Visuals ahead of the match had shown Tahlia sitting up in the stand with a mask on and kept away from the rest of the Australia team. She didn’t even join the side during the national anthem as well. Tahlia’s participation in the gold medal match was approved by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

“Commonwealth Games Australia (CGA) can confirm that cricketer Tahlia McGrath has returned a positive test for Covid-19. CGA clinical staff have consulted with the Commonwealth Games Federation RACEG (Results Analysis Clinical Expert Group) team and match officials, and McGrath is taking part in today’s final against India.”

“McGrath presented to team management with mild symptoms on Sunday and subsequently returned the positive test. She was named in the starting XI at the toss and the International Cricket Council (ICC) approved her participation in the final.”

“In consultation with the CGF and the ICC, CGA and Cricket Australia medical staff have implemented a range of comprehensive protocols which will be observed throughout the game and for post-match activity, to minimise the risk of transmission to all players and officials.”

“The CGA has maintained a comprehensive Covid-19 risk mitigation strategy for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, with testing protocols over and above those required by the Birmingham 2022 Organising Committee. Any further comment will be made at a later time,” said a statement from the Australian camp.  (Agency)
