The England players will return to the UK immediately, but Northants have confirmed that the County squad will be continuing with their training camp.

A club statement read: "Everything's continuing as normal for over in Singapore, there are no plans for any changes currently."

Northants are based at the Singapore Cricket Club, and are scheduled to play two T20 matches there on Monday, before playing an inter-squad two-day match later in the week.
