Naseem Khan has tested positive for Covid-19
A day after it was said that he had pneumonia, the young Pakistani bowler Naseem Khan has tested positive for Covid-19. The strike bowler has been let out of the hospital, though. ESPNcricinfo says that Naseem is the second person in the Pakistan camp to get Covid-19 during the current series against England. Last week, an unknown member of the support staff for Pakistan tested positive for Covid-19.
That time, the person didn’t go with the team to the National Stadium in Karachi for the second T20I, and there were no delays.
The Asian giants leave for New Zealand on October 3
Naseem spent the night in the hospital after getting pneumonia on Wednesday. The PCB said that their own medical panel was keeping an eye on him. Because of this, he won’t be able to play in the last two games of the series against England, and the positive Covid-19 test makes it very likely that he won’t be able to play in the upcoming tour of New Zealand, which is set to start in Christchurch on April 16.
The Asian giants leave for New Zealand on October 3 to play against Bangladesh in a T20I triangular series. The last game of the series is on October 14. After playing two warm-up games, including one against England, they will fly to Australia for the World Cup. On October 23, they will play India in Melbourne.
Afridi has been getting treatment for a knee problem in London
Naseem played in both the Asia Cup, which just ended, and the first game of the series against England. He had taken over as Pakistan’s best new-ball bowler since Shaheen Shah Afridi was also hurt and couldn’t play.
Afridi has been getting treatment for a knee problem in London. He is expected to be ready for the T20 World Cup. Which starts in October and will be held in Australia.
