Pakistan domestic cricketer tests positive for COVID 19

Bismillah Khan, the Balochistan right-hand batsman, has tested positive for coronavirus in Karachi.

According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, wicketkeeper-batsman showed symptoms during the second round match against Southern Punjab in the Quaid-e-Azam trophy.

However, the batsman was not tested until the fourth day, after which he was replaced by Adnan Akmal. The 30-year-old cricketer then spent the remainder of the day in isolation.

The incident has put an entire tournament under scanner as all six teams were staying at the same hotel. Everyone will now undergo testing, and the results will be out in a few hours.

Meanwhile, Pakistan had clinched the ODI series against Zimbabwe 2-1. In the third ODI, Zimbabwe defeated Pakistan in a Super Over at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.

With this victory, Zimbabwe gained a consolation win in the third and final ODI.
