This should be Rohail Nazir’s first international trip. The opportunity has come his way only because Mohd. Rizwan tested positive for the virus. Sarfaraz Ahmed nevertheless, is likely to be part of the tour as Pakistan’s first choice wicket-keeper batsman across formats.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will retest all cricketers after Mohd. Hafeez tested negative from a local laboratory a day after he was announced positive by the board. All results will be announced on Saturday and thus, Rohail might not make the cut if Rizwan is found to be negative. Similarly, the remaining backups too might miss the opportunity if the first choice players report a negative COVID 19 test.
