After the Pakistan cricket squad was disallowed to train, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Officer Wasim Khan has expressed disappointment with the New Zealand Cricket (NZC).

As 44 members have reportedly tested negative for coronavirus out of 54 the fourth time, Khan showed concern as the Day 9 swab testing results have not been revealed to the public yet.

“I have contacted NZC and the New Zealand Ministry of Health. I have expressed frustration over not being allowed to train,” PCB CEO said.

He added,

“Further it is disappointing that NZ health ministry has not made public the results of the team’s fourth COVID-19 test.”

The Pakistan cricket team has been instructed to complete its 14-day quarantine period at the hotel by the New Zealand health ministry and during this time, they will not be allowed to train till December 8.

Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, New Zealand DG Health, said that the Pakistani team has many corona positive players. To avoid the spread of the novel virus, the team is not allowed to leave the hotel in groups and hoped that the Pakistani team would accept the hard decision.

Earlier, Wasim Khan said that the Pakistani contingent may have contracted the virus while traveling to New Zealand.
