NZ squad vaccinated before England trip


AUCKLAND: New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said on Tuesday all of its homebased players heading to England for a two-match Test series and the World Test Championsh­ip final have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The New Zealand government said last month it would allow athletes to jump the queue in the country’s vaccine rollout to allow them to participat­e in events of “national significan­ce”. The country has also started administer­ing vaccinatio­ns to its athletes ahead of their departure for the July 23-Aug. 8 Tokyo Olympics. NZC posted a photo on Twitter of paceman Neil Wagner getting his injection on Tuesday.
