Every sporting activity had been on a halt for quite some time due to the widespread disease of coronavirus. All the sports have been badly affected and cricket is no exception. Covid-19 has, in fact, put a heavy toll on Cricket and as no cricketing series has been organized in any test playing nation for close to three months.
However, England has now become the first nation who are going to organize the first cricket series, slated to commence from July onwards in closed doors keeping all the health and safety protocols in mind.
Meanwhile, several cricketers, especially from the Asian Continent or their family members have been tested positive for COVID-19. It started with former Pakistan player Shahid Afridi, followed by the families of BCCI president Sourav Ganguly.
Recently Bangladesh ex-captain Mashraffe Mortaza along with other two cricketers from Bangladesh have been tested positive for COVID -19.
According to the latest developments, seven more players from Pakistan have now been tested positive for the Coronavirus. Players such as Kashif Bhatti, Mohammad Hasnain, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Hafeez, Wahab Riaz, and Imran Khan have all been tested positive.
It can be certainly be touted as a bad day for Pakistan Cricket as a few days before, three players of Pakistan such as Shadab Khan, Haris Rauf, and Haider Ali were also tested positive for Coronavirus.
This is not good news for Pakistan Cricket as the players were supposed to travel for England series. PCB is making sure that players who have been infected by this deadly virus should become healthy soon.
