Ten players left off Pakistan’s England tour
Pakistan’s cricket team will leave for its tour of England on Sunday without 10 players, after they tested positive for coronavirus for a second time, the country’s cricket board said Saturday.
The board CEO Wasim Khan said the players can rejoin the squad of 18 players if they later test negative.
After first testing positive this week, follow-up tests were given to Shadab Khan, Haris Rauf, Haider Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Rizwan, Wahab Riaz, Imran Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain and Kashif Bhatti. Of those missing the start, only wicketkeeper Rizwan would be classed a firstchoice Test player.
