Rohail Nazir, Bilal Asif and others have been added as possible replacements for the COVID 19 effected players. So, here is a look at who else is in the mix of things for the English tour.
Who Is Likely To Be Added
Rohail Nazir, Bilal Asif, Imran Butt, Mohammad Nawaz and Musa Khan have all gone through COVID 19 tests and hence, will be added to the squad if they test negative and if previously tested ten players still remain positive.
First International Trip For Rohail Nazir
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.
Official Word Yet To Come As Situation Remains Fluid
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.
