London Spirit head coach Shane Warne has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss their next fixture.

The former Australia spinner, 51, returned a positive lateral flow test after feeling unwell and is now awaiting a PCR test result.

He was one of two members of the men's side's coaching staff to test positive, with both now self-isolating.

Both will miss the fixture against Southern Brave at Lord's on Sunday but no players have been affected.

"Shane will isolate from the squad and support staff whilst he awaits PCR results," Spirit said.

Warne's Spirit side are yet to win, having played three games in the men's competition.
