Everything seems normal now after the controversy over the investigation of corona virus infection in Pakistan cricket. The six Pakistani cricketers who were found positive in the Kovid-19 test before leaving for England last week, have now come for a second test in three days, allowing them to join the team in England. Now the PCB will arrange for them to go to England.
The latest test conducted by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) found opener Fakhar Zaman, all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez, leg-spinner Shadab Khan, wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan, fast bowler Wahab Riaz and Muhammad Hasnain negative.
“The players were tested again on June 29 after the first negative test on June 26,” the PCB said on Tuesday. With this, Hafeez’s dispute with the PCB also ended. Hafeez’s first test came positive, but after that Hafeez had tested negative in a private hospital, and the PCB was angry. PCB’s displeasure was over why Hafeez went to a private hospital instead of going to isolation. In such a situation, Hafeez’s tour of England depended on the second test of PCB, which is now negative.
Spinner Kashif Bhatti, fast bowler Harris Rauf, Imran Khan and batsman Haider Ali are still in isolation. On Saturday, 10 of the players selected for the tour were found to be Corona virus positive before leaving for England.
