Pakistan cricket team to arrive in England on Sunday for Test, T20 series
The Pakistan cricket team will arrive England for three Tests and as many T20Is on Sunday (28th June) despite several players testing positive for the novel coronavirus.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said earlier this week that 10 players had returned positive tests, plus a support staff member.
But the England and Wales Cricket Board said players would arrive for their summer tour on Sunday.
It is understood those who have recorded positive Tests will not be allowed to travel, with the PCB due to confirm its advance party on Saturday.
Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez said Wednesday that a second test he commissioned himself proved he did not have coronavirus, a day after the PCB said he was among the players who had officially tested positive.
Hafeez, like the rest of those who tested positive, said he had immediately arranged a private second opinion.
“I personally went to test it again, along with my family, and here I, along with my all family members are reported negative,” he tweeted.
Shadab Khan, Haris Rauf, Haider Ali, and a team massage therapist tested positive on Monday.
But of the positive Tests, only wicketkeeper Rizwan would be classed a first-choice Test player.
Pakistan’s tour of England is set to include three Tests and three T20 internationals.
