Pakistan will tour England for three Tests and three Twenty20s, starting in August.
While the deadly virus has caught hold of Haider Ail, Haris Rauf and Shadab Khan initially, also it is yet to show symptoms in these players. One can take a hint, how dangerous Corona virus is proving for the world.
Along with these three players, 7 more Pakistani cricketers tested positive. In the list, Pakistan’s opening batsman Fakhar Zaman has also tested positive as well.
Including Imran Khan, Kashif Bhatti, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Rizwan and left arm pacer Wahab Riaz have all tested positive for COVID19.
All the players are strictly instructed to go for Home isolation for 14 days. However, the PCB chief is confident enough that rest of the squad will leave as per schedule.
The team is scheduled to leave for England on June 28, it will difficult for the Pakistan team to leave big names behind.
With the likes of Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shadab Khan, Haris Rauf and Wahab Riaz being in hold of Corona Virus. The sports fraternity is pretty unsure how the team will perform against the strong English side in the white ball matches.
