  • Pakistan confirm 20-man squad which departs for England on Sunday

Pakistan were forced to trim their initial 29-man group down to only 20 after ten players tested positive for Covid-19 last week.

"After testing positive COVID-19 acc to PCB testing Report yesterday, as 2nd opinion and for satisfaction I personally went to Test it again along with my family, and here I along with my all family members are reported Negative", Hafeez had tweeted.

Hafeez and Riaz underwent tests at a lab, which the PCB does not use, and though the test results came negative it has not been taken into consideration, PCB chief executive Wasim Khan said.

"This is a very intriguing situation for the board".

Following advice from leading sports science experts and as per the United Kingdom government regulations, players who have tested positive during the PCB testing process will be unable to travel on Sunday.

The board has said it will announce results of all tests on Saturday (June 27).

The team's masseur Malang Ali tested positive twice.

"That is why he took a second test privately as a precautionary measure he had no intention to embarrass the authorities", the source said.
