Fortune hasn’t favoured David Willey in the past few months, and his latest tweet showcased his frustration. The England all-rounder, who plays for Yorkshire, recently tested positive for COVID-19 and got ruled out of the remaining Vitality T20 Blasts 2020 season. Willey was gutted with his luck as he recalled all the recent events of his life. The left-arm pacer made a comeback in the national team for ODIs against Ireland. Despite performing exceptionally well, the southpaw wasn’t selected in England side for series against Australia. He then joined Yorkshire for T20 blast but contracted the virus and was put in quarantine. Adding to the tragic events, Willey last night saw both England and Yorkshire losing their respective matches.
