    The Pakistan cricket team will arrive in England on Sunday for their summer tour. The Pakistan squad will be missing their key players as they have tested positive for the coronavirus disease, informed cricket chiefs on Friday.

    Earlier this week, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had announced that 10 Pakistan players had returned COVID-19 positive, plus a support staff member. However, the England Cricket Board (ECB) said that the players will arrive for their summer tour on Sunday with a virus testing program in place.

    It is understood those who have recorded positive tests — and anyone else who returns a subsequent positive finding — will not be allowed to travel, with the PCB due to confirm its advance party on Saturday.

    Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez after being tested positive for COVID-19 said that a second test he commissioned himself proved he did not have coronavirus.

    Hafeez, described by officials as asymptomatic, like the rest of those who tested positive, said he had immediately arranged a private second opinion.

    Hafeez tweeted, “I personally went to test it again, along with my family, and here I, along with my all family members are reported negative.”

    Pakistan’s fragile health care facility is making it difficult for the nation to fight the pandemic. There have been more than 190,000 confirmed cases in the country so far, with around 4,000 deaths.

    Pakistan’s tour of England is set to include three Tests and three Twenty20 internationals.

    Earlier this month, Pakistan former skipper Shahid Afridi also had tested positive for the coronavirus infection.
