Meanwhile, David Willey’s career has been an absolute roller-coaster since last one year. After being dropped from the World Cup squad in favour of Jofra Archer, he made a comeback into the side earlier this year. Just when he was finding his touch, he was again dropped from the England squad and now he’s been tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.
Furthermore, as of now his side Yorkshire is placed fifth in the points table with 6 points to their name. They have managed to only win 2 games out of their last 8 games. And now with Yorkshire’s 4 players now ruled out they’re in a spot of bother.
