Out of ten who tested positive for COVID-19, six had already tested negative twice and are ready for departure towards England.
Just recently, the Pakistan Cricket Board had been surprised as 10 of their players had tested positive for COVID-19. With an upcoming tour against England, the PCB had stated that these players will not be allowed to join the departure towards England without testing negative twice.
Gladly, six out of ten players had already been cleared from the virus. These are Mohammad Hafeez, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hasnain, and Mohammad Rizwan.
Having them cleared from the virus, the PCB will facilitate the travel of these six players towards England so that they can join their teammates who are preparing for the upcoming tour. They will all proceed in Worcester together with the first batch who already flew towards the UK. The six players will be the second batch who would have to undergo the mandatory 14-day isolation period.
As per the other players who tested positive, they were advised to undergo some self-isolation so that they can feel better and present two consecutive negative results to the PCB. These remaining players are Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Imran Khan, and Kashif Bhatti.
Should they not make it on time for the team training, the PCB has already included some back-up players on the first batch that they had sent to Worcester. Pakistan’s tour of England consists of three Test matches and the same number of T20Is. To further understand these formats, visit Betwala.
