The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed on Monday that Shadab Khan, Haris Rauf, and Haider Ali tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of the ‘bio-secure’ England tour.
According to the PCB, none of them showed any symptoms until they were tested in Rawalpindi on Sunday. The PCB medical panel is in contact with the three who have been advised to immediately go into self-isolation.
On the other hand, Imad Wasim and Usman Shinwari, also screened in Rawalpindi, have tested negative and, as such, will travel to Lahore on 24 June.
The other players and team officials, barring Cliffe Deacon, Shoaib Malik and Waqar Younis, underwent tests at their respective centres in Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar on Monday. Their results are expected at some stage on Tuesday.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Pakistan team will leave for England on June 28 to play three Tests and as many T20Is in ‘bio-secure’ environment.
