Former England captain Michael Vaughan was among those fiercely critical of the decision to place the country's white-ball team in isolation after three players and four backroom staff test positive for Covid.

News broke early on Tuesday that the whole of England's white-ball team were forced to isolate because of a breach of Covid protocols.

A completely new England team, captained by Ben Stokes, will be forced to face Pakistan in the one-day series that starts in Cardiff on Thursday after the virus swept through the camp.

Three England players and four management staff have all tested positive for Covid after the final match against Sri Lanka at Bristol on Sunday.

It is not clear yet how the protocols were breached but an investigation will be held by England and the implications for the rest of the summer will be huge.

The whole 16-man squad and their management team, led by stand-in coach Paul Collingwood, will be forced to isolate for 10 days and will be out of the three-match one-day series.

That includes the second game which is due to be staged in front of a full house at Lord's on Saturday.

Vaughan, who captained England in 51 Test matches during his career, was among those to question the decision, particularly given the Scottish football team did not have to isolate when Billy Gilmour tested positive last month at the Euros.
