·1-min read

Australian cricketer Michael Hussey has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 in India.

Indian media are reporting his test result came back on Tuesday.

Hussey, who's working as batting coach for the IPL's Chennai Super Kings, is now undergoing a second test.

"Hussey tested positive. But his samples are being redone," a team source told The Times of India.

"Hopefully, the report will come negative."

Hussey's first test result comes after Chennai Super Kings bowling coach L Balaji and another team staff member tested positive.

Batsman Steve Smith and other Australian cricketers including Hussey are isolating in India after the IPL was suspended amid a widening coronavirus outbreak in the country.
