Former Australia batsman Peter Handscomb has tested positive for COVID-19 while in England for a county cricket stint.

The 30-year-old has been captaining Middlesex this season but was forced out of their Championship Group Two game on Sunday after getting the test result.

Irishman Tim Murtagh stepped up to fill in for Handscomb as skipper as Middlesex ended day one of the clash with Leicestershire at 3-280.

Handscomb last played for Australia in 2019 after having appeared at Test, ODI and Twenty20 level during that year.
