Six Pakistan cricketers are eligible to join the team in England after their second COVID-19 test came out negative after first testing positive, the Pakistan Cricket Board said on Tuesday.

Opening batsman Fakhar Zaman, allrounder Mohammad Hafeez, legspinner Shadab Khan, wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan and fast bowlers Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Hasnain were tested negative for COVID-19 for the second time in three days.

The PCB said that all the six players were retested on Monday, following a first negative test last Friday. The cricket board will now make arrangements to fly out these six cricketers to England and the PCB said players’ “departure details will be shared in due course.”

Pakistan’s 20-member squad left for England on Sunday to play three test matches and three Twenty20s in August and September. The team is in Worcestershire where it will complete a 14-day isolation period on July 13.
