Pakistan’s all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez was sent into isolation after violating the existing bio-security protocols for players on the England tour.
On Wednesday morning, all-rounder shared a picture on his Twitter account posing for a photo with an elderly lady.
“Met an inspirational young lady today morning at golf course. She is 90+ & living her life healthy & happily. Good healthy routine,” tweeted Hafeez.
Although the all-rounder was permitted to play golf in the golf course next to the Ageas Bowl hotel, he was not allowed to interact with a member of the public.
“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,” said the PCB in a statement.
“As it was evident from the photograph that Hafeez had breached the two-metre social distancing protocol and following a consultation process with the team doctor, the team management has decided to isolate him until he returns a negative Covid-19 test,” the statement added. “Hafeez underwent the Covid-19 test late Wednesday afternoon and the result is expected at some stage on Thursday.”
The team management has updated the England and Wales Cricket Board of its decision as well
Hafeez is not among the 20 shortlisted players for the current 3-match Test series against England.
This should be noted that during the first phase of the PCB testing Hafeez had tested positive for Covid-19 but was subsequently cleared for travel to England after reporting two negative tests. He then had himself tested privately after the initial positive results, which resulted in the PCB reprimanding the all-rounder.
