Players from Pakistan’s under 19 squad and support staff for their upcoming series with Bangladesh have cleared the first round of COVID-19 tests.

According to the details, after testing negative for the novel coronavirus, all the players and staff included in the squad were allowed to reach Lahore.

However, the national squad and staff will undergo the second round of coronavirus tests on April 1st. The players will start their training sessions from next day if they clear the tests.

After a ten-day camp in Lahore, the final squad of 17 players and team management will leave for Bangladesh on April 11.

Pakistan Under-19 team will tour Bangladesh next month for a series of five one-day matches and a four-day game starting from April 19 in Sylhet.

The team and its management will be tested for Covid-19 before entering the camp and, after the return of negative tests, members will be allowed to move into a biosecure bubble, for which the players will convene in Lahore.

The tour has been arranged to prepare the players for the next ICC Under-19 World Cup, which is scheduled to take place in the West Indies next year.
