Hafeez, Wahab, four others to depart for Manchester on Friday


Bureau Report

Lahore: The second group of six Pakistan cricketers will travel to Manchester on Friday, 3rd July.
Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, and Wahab Riaz will travel by the Pakistan National Airlines (PIA).
The six players upon their arrival in England will be transported to Worcestershire and will integrate with the side after they test negative in the ECB testing program.
The six players underwent fourth round of COVID-19 testing as available flights asked for test reports of the private lab instead of PCB-linked lab.
On the other hand, Pakistan’s squad of 20 players trained in Worcestershire for the first time yesterday.
Pakistan Head coach-cum-chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq enjoyed being on the field after a gap of almost three months. “It is good to be back on the field after a long time. We really enjoyed our session today and we are looking forward to continuing this positivity throughout the whole tour.”
It must be noted here that Pakistan will play three Tests and as many T20Is against England in August and September.
