Former Pakistan skipper Mohammad Hafeez has been imposed isolation order by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) for breaching the biosecurity bubble on Wednesday.
The 39-year-old is in England for the white-ball series starting with the first T20I match on August 28. But Hafeez’s actions have upset the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) because, despite all the instructions, he breached the biosecurity bubble.
“This morning, Mohammad Hafeez went to a golf course, which is adjacent to the team hotel and part of the bio-secure bubble. During the golf round, he was photographed with a member of the public, which he subsequently posted on his social media account,” the PCB release said.
Hafeez left the team hotel as he later posted a picture on his Twitter account posing with an old lady in the golf park adjoining the team hotel. This caused him the trouble which was later followed by the mandatory isolation for at least five days until he tests negative twice.

Earlier, Hafeez was among those players who were barred from flying to England after testing positive for the coronavirus. He was later cleared by the PCB to travel England for the limited-overs series.
The ECB is already very momentous about the biosecurity bubble and all the protocols related to the bubble. In fact, the ECB medical team is aware of Hafeez’s negligence so they would definitely take actions to avoid any mishappenings.
