Before leaving for New Zealand tour Pakistan Cricket Team Has suffered a major setback.
Actually, opening batsman Fakhar has been out of the bail tour. Zaman is ruled out as a rescue due to some symptoms of the corona virus.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) reported in a press release that Zaman had some symptoms after being found corona negative.
Bail is not in a position to travel with the team- Doctor
Pakistani team doctor Sohail Salim said that Zaman Nigevit was found in the Kovid result on Saturday.
He added, “He got fever after the result. As soon as he came to know, he was put away from the other players in the team hotel. We are constantly monitoring his condition and wish him well soon. He is currently not in a position to travel with the team. ”
Quarantine rules created problems
Even if Zaman recovers after being found Corona positive, he is less likely to be associated with the team.
Actually, people coming to New Zealand have to stay in Quarantine for 14 days and during this time they cannot even meet each other.
His corona test will be done on the third and 12th day of his arrival in New Zealand, in which he can live together after being found negative.
PCB has not opted for bail
Despite being out of jail tour, PCB has not selected any player in his place.
Haider Ali or Abdullah Shafiq may join captain Babar Azam in the top order in place of Zaman, who is considered to be eligible for a place in the limited overs series.
