Tensions rise for Pakistani cricket team, as six more players are positive for COVID-19 in New Zealand, PCB reports.

Cricket officials in New Zealand say players would be moved into quarantine, throwing preparations for the series into turmoil. The squad’s “exemption to train while in managed isolation has been put on hold until investigations have been completed.” 

This is surely disappointing for the Pakistan squad because prior to leaving Lahore, all members of the Pakistan touring squad returned negative results on the four occasions they were tested.

The lack of proper testing shows how the Government system is working regarding testing for COVID19.

NZC has also been made aware separately that some members of the Pakistan team had infringed protocols on the first day of isolation. We will be having discussions with the tourists to assist them in understanding the requirements.
