Pakistan to leave isolation tomorrow after negative COVID-19 tests


Christchurch : Pakistan squad have been cleared to leave managed isolation tomorrow after negative COVID-19 tests.

The New Zealand Cricket (NZC) in a statement released on Twitter wrote that the squad will leave managed isolation after the pending final approval of the Ministry of Health.

Pakistan players were not allowed to train in isolation after ten members of the contingent tested positive in different phases of testing.

The squad will now fly to Queenstown where they will train and play intra-squad matches ahead of the three-match T20I series, starting from December 18.

However, one member of the squad who tested positive on the sixth day of their 14-day mandatory isolation would remain in the bio-secure facility until he returns negative tests.

Assistant coach Shahid Aslam has also been cleared to join the squad after he was taken into quarantine in Auckland after arriving from Dubai as he was feeling unwell.
