More trouble for Pakistan as another positive case comes out of their team

There seems no end to Pakistan’s trouble in their tour to New Zealand as another member from their squad was found positive for the COVID-19 virus.

This is the eight case in their 54 member squad which has been sent to New Zealand for playing 3 T20I’s and 2 tests.


Earlier as soon as the team landed 6 members were found positive after being tested negative in Lahore before their departure. While 2 of those six were traced as historical cases, the other 4 were declared as new cases. The Pakistan management was warned by the NZ government and cricket board.

A few days another player was tested positive for the virus which resulted in PCB CEO calling the team players and warning them about the zero tolerance policy in NZ. The health ministry of NZ gave the final warning to the Pakistan management about the breach of protocol by the Pakistani players as they were seen dining together, roaming without masks and gathering in the hallway. PCB CEO sent out a audio message that the NZ government has given the Pakistani team a final warning and if there is another case of breach in protocols, they will be sent back to Pakistan.

Now another case has been found in the Pakistani camp and the team management is yet to give out their statement on it. The NZ health ministry has also not given their statement regarding this till now.

Pakistan is set to play against the New Zealand side for three T20I’s and two tests starting from 18th December.
