"I have very carefully considered this situation", Bloomfield said.

On Wednesday, the New Zealand Health Ministry had confirmed that one more member of the Pakistan cricket squad tested positive for coronavirus which had taken the total cases in the touring team to eight.

"There have been a number of active cases identified among the team".

"We appreciate the challenges that this decision will have for the touring team", Dr Ashley Bloomfield said.

"Seven of the squad are infected with coronavirus".

The decision means that Pakistan's cricketers will have only 10 days to prepare for their first tour match, a Twenty20 global in Auckland on 18 December, and probably less when travel is factored in.

Pakistan were scheduled to have a four-day game starting on December 10 against New Zealand "A" upon their release from isolation, but opted instead to play a series of intra-squad matches, New Zealand Cricket said on Thursday.

It was reported earlier this week that the squad could not train until the Canterbury District Health Board medical officer of health was satisfied any training activities were to transmit the virus. The last time there were no new cases detected at the border or in the community was on October 19.

Just last week, Pakistan cricket legend Shoaib Akhtar hit out at threats to cancel his former team's tour.

Further breaches might have led to the team being expelled from New Zealand.

Chief Executive Wasim Khan has revealed that he spoke to and "strongly expressed my disappointment" with New Zealand Cricket (NZC) officials after the national team was on Friday once again denied permission to train in managed isolation, despite a vast number of players having reportedly cleared their Covid-19 tests.

The New Zealand Health Ministry, in another release, on Friday said that "laboratories are processing the Pakistan team's day 9 swabs, which were taken yesterday". Our cricket has not finished. So, you should be indebted to us that we made a decision to tour your country in such hard times. Be careful next time. "Pakistan team now needs to smash them in T20 series".
