Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wrote two emails to New Zealand Cricket (NZC) and Ministry of Health after they did not allow Covid-19 negative Pakistani players to train on Friday regardless of repeated assurances.
The paper said that PCB Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Wasim Khan, was upset with the authorities’ decision and wrote them two separate letters.
Wasim Khan added that the authorities had promised to resume players training after the outcome of the fourth test. He said that there is no stable reason to deny the corona negative players the opportunity to train.
“Players tested negative consecutively for the fourth time during their nine-day quarantine in New Zealand. Since they have been repeatedly tested negative there is no stable reason to deny them the opportunity to pursue training and to prepare for T20 and Test series,” the paper quoted his letter.
A statement by the New Zealand health authorities on Friday confirmed that players will not be granted the exemption to leave their hotel to train in groups prior to completing the 14-day quarantine period in Christchurch.
