Three Pakistani Players Test Positive for COVID-19

Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, and Shadab Khan have all contracted the virus before the scheduled Pakistan tour of England. 

In preparation for their upcoming tour against England, the Pakistan Cricket Board made sure that their players will be tested before going out into the field. As the Rawalpindi results came in, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, and Shadab Khan have all tested positive despite being asymptomatic. 

As per the PCB, ‘The PCB medical panel is in contact with the three who have been advised to immediately go into self-isolation. Imad Wasim and Usman Shinwari, also screened in Rawalpindi, have tested negative and, as such, will travel to Lahore on June 24’. 

To date, the PCB continues to wait for the test results of the other players who have been tested in Karachi, Lahore, and Peshawar. 

In case another player turns out to be COVID-19 positive, four players have already been named as reserves for the Pakistan squad. These are Bilal Asif, Imran Butt, Musa Khan, and Muhammad Nawaz. 

Pakistan will face England on July in a series of three Test matches and three T20Is. The Test matches will be held at Lord’s, Manchester, and Nottingham. Meanwhile, the T20Is will be played in Leeds, Cardiff, and Southampton. To further understand these cricket formats, visit Betwala.
