Pakistan Tour of England: Pakistan cricketer back in squad after COVID-19 positive test

A Pakistan cricketer has been cleared to return to the squad on their tour of England after testing positive for the coronavirus, England said on Thursday.

The player, who wasn’t identified, returned the positive test “for the remnants of a previous COVID-19 infection” and underwent a precautionary period of self-isolation after arriving in Britain, the England and Wales Cricket Board said.

“The player has since returned two negative tests with no risk of infection
to other players and staff,” the ECB statement said.

Pakistan arrived in Britain last month and are scheduled to play three Tests and three Twenty20s against England.
