Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday and he will not depart for Lahore with his side later today, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said. Misbah, who is asymptomatic, will now undergo a 10-day quarantine, following which he will depart for Pakistan.
Misbah is the only Pakistan squad member who failed two pre-departure PCR tests. All other members will leave Jamaica as per schedule later today.
“The PCB is constantly in touch with Cricket West Indies who have confirmed that Misbah will be shifted to another hotel for the 10-day quarantine with a medical specialist assigned to look after his health and wellbeing,” a Pakistan Cricket Board release stated.
On their tour of the Caribbean, Pakistan won the T20I series 1-0 (three other games were washed out) and drew the Test series 1-1 after a 109-run win in Jamaica.
