Auckland medium pacer Ben Lister on Tuesday became the first Covid-19 substitute in cricket, replacing teammate Mark Chapman in the ongoing Plunket Shield first-class championship.

The 26-year-old Chapman, who has represented New Zealand in six ODIs and 24 T20Is, reportedly felt sick on Monday following which the batsman underwent a Covid-19 test.

Lister, who has featured in 18 first-class games, was named as the replacement until Chapman’s test results are known.
