Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, and Wahab Riaz have been found negative in the latest round of testing conducted by the Pakistan Cricket Board. “The players were retested on Monday, 29 June, following a first negative test on 26 June,” the PCB said in a statement on Tuesday.
Before this testing, Hafeez got himself tested at a private facility without the prior consent of the PCB as the private facility found him negative just a day after PCB has put Hafeez in the infected list. In total 10 Pakistani players were found coronavirus positive before the team left for England tour on Saturday. The PCB in its latest statement said that the six players “are now eligible to join the Pakistan men’s national cricket team in Worcestershire.”
“The PCB will now start making their travel arrangements and the departure details will be shared in due course,” the Board added. Pakistan will take on England in a three-Test and three T20 International series in August.
