One player of the South Africa-bound squad tests positive; his repeat test to be held tomorrow

From our correspondent

LAHORE: As many as 35 tests were conducted on the South Africa-bound Pakistan men’s national cricket team on Tuesday.

“All squad members have tested negative, except for one player,” the PCB said on Wednesday. “Those who have tested negative will now assemble in Lahore on Thursday (tomorrow) for the training camp, which will commence at the Gaddafi Stadium on Friday,” it added.

The Board said that the player who has tested positive will undergo a repeat test on Thursday at his residence. If he tests negative, only then he will be eligible to travel to Lahore where he will remain in isolation for two more days before being retested.

Pakistan will depart for South Africa on March 26 for a three-match one-day and four-match T20 series which will begin with the first one-day at Pretoria on April 2.
