Six Pakistan players flying to England this week after negative COVID-19 tests

Mohammad Hafeez and Wahab Riaz are among the individuals who will join up with the rest of the squad on Friday after being permitted to travel


Pakistan will be boosted by the news six more players are set to join their touring squad in England this week.

Ten of the original group tested positive for COVID-19 and were barred from travelled until they returned two consecutive negative tests.

Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan and Wahab Riaz have been passed to travel to England and will fly to Manchester on Friday.

They will then be re-tested as part of the ECB programme before moving on to Worcester where they will join up with the rest of the squad.

Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Kashif Bhatti and Imran Khan have yet to return two straight negative tests and will not yet be allowed to travel.

Twenty Pakistan players arrived in England on June 28 and have since been training at Worcestershire's New Road.

They are scheduled to play three Tests and three T20 internationals against England, though the full schedule has not yet been confirmed.
