The England players and support staff underwent antigen tests upon arrival.

Sri Lanka after closing its airspace to scheduled commercial flights since May now only has handful of repatriation flights and charters allowed.

“We are very excited about the Galle Tests,” Root told reporters at the time of arrival.

Airport staff in white hazmat suits sprayed the hands and footwear of the visitors and their luggage before they were allowed into the terminal for coronavirus tests.
