Mohammad Hafeez tests positive again for Covid 19, England tour in jeopardy

They are: Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan and Wahab Riaz.

A depleted Pakistan squad left for the tour of England on Sunday to play three Tests and as many T20Is after half the players and some members of the support staff tested positive for the coronavirus.

As the second round of Covid-19 testing of 28 players and 12 officials - besides five reserves players and one probable official - was completed on Friday, the PCB is to announce the final list of cricketers and officials to travel to England by Saturday.

Six of the 10 Pakistan players who had tested positive for Covid-19 last week, including batting all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez and fast bowler Wahab Riaz, have returned negative results following a second round of tests.

Despite testing negative, these players will not board the flight to England tomorrow as they will undergo another round of testing in the days to come and will then be subsequently sent to England with arrangements made by PCB.

However, it was learnt that many of those players who had tested positive in the first round went to hospitals in their respective cities to appear for the second round of tests instead of giving the samples at their homes where they are supposed to serving the quarantine, period. The Pakistan board had earlier planned to send a 29-man squad to England but after the numbers were cut short due to the COVID-19 effect, the team has sent a reduced number of players.

European Central Bank said Pakistan's cricket team will start a 14-day isolation period at Blackfinch New Road, Worcester before transferring to Derbyshire's the Incora County Ground on July 13 to accelerate their preparation ahead of the first Test, which will include two four-day internal warm-up matches.
