Pakistan cricket players to travel to Manchester

20 players 11 support staff leave for Manchester

The board chief executive Wasim Khan said the players can rejoin the squad of 18 players if they later test negative.

"PCB showed a bit of mismanagement, we just started doing random testing of players, now players have tested positive for coronavirus, the worst-hit area due to coronavirus is maybe Lahore, then it is Karachi".

Those cricketers and officials who were found negative in the first round of tests are staying at a hotel under a bio-secure environment, and their second round tests were also conducted in the hotel.

PCB CEO Wasim Khan said: "With the Test series being played first in August, [head coach] Misbah [ul-Haq] is satisfied with the group of players that are traveling on Sunday as the focus will be on red-ball preparation".

Pakistan, who had earlier announced a 29-member squad for England tour, have now announced a refurbished 20-member squad which will leave for England tomorrow in a chartered flight organized by England Cricket Board.
