Hasan Ali tests positive again for coronavirus

The Pakistan Cricket Board Wednesday announced another positive coronavirus test of a player from the Pakistan team bound to play in South Africa.

A total of 35 tests were conducted on the team on Tuesday, 16 March and all squad members have tested negative, except for one player.

According to the sources, Hasan Ali has been again tested positive for the coronavirus. Earlier, his test came positive during the Pakistan Super League’s sixth edition.

Ironically, the player continued to play a match in Gujranwala despite being tested positive, posing a serious health security risk to other players and people closed to him.

According to the PCB, the players who have tested negative will now assemble in Lahore on Thursday, 18 March, for the training camp, which will commence at the Gaddafi Stadium on Friday.

The player who has tested positive will undergo a repeat test on Thursday at his residence. If he tests negative, only then he will be eligible to travel to Lahore where he will remain in isolation for two more days before being retested.

Pakistan team will start training at the Gaddafi Stadium from March 19 and would depart for South Africa on March 26.
