The One-Day Cup match between Gloucestershire and Middlesex was cancelled after an outbreak of Covid-19. A number of Gloucestershire players were infected and forced into isolation. 

“We are extremely disappointed to announce that tomorrow's Royal London Cup match at Radlett against Gloucestershire has been cancelled by the ECB, due to a Covid outbreak in the Gloucestershire squad,” Middlesex said in a statement. 

“We have tonight heard from the ECB and Gloucestershire that the scheduled visitors tomorrow are unable to field a side for the clash as the majority of their squad are self isolating after Covid tests in the camp returned positive,” it further added. 

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had confirmed the cancellation of the fixture after there were instances of positive Covid-19 cases within the Gloucestershire team. 

Earlier, a county match between Essex and Derbyshire was called off midway while Kent had to field their second XI for a match after one of the players of the first team had tested positive. 

Middlesex have only managed to win two out of the seven matches that they have played and have five points under their belt. On the other hand, Gloucestershire have clinched wins in three of the seven matches that they have featured in and have six points in their kitty.
