LAHORE: Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has undergone a coronavirus test after posing a photo with a fan in England.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said Hafeez underwent the COVID-19 test late Wednesday afternoon and the result is expected at some stage on Thursday.
PCB further said, “today, 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 fans, which he subsequently posted on his social media account”.

“As it was evident from the photograph that Hafeez had breached the two-meter 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 test for the virus”, said the board.
The team management believes it was an inadvertent mistake, but a good reminder for everyone on the importance of following the bio-secure protocols, which have been designed for the health and safety of everyone involved in the series. The team management has updated the England and Wales Cricket Board of its decision, said PCB.
Earlier  Hafeez was among the 10 Pakistan players who tested positive for the coronavirus ahead of their England tour but he returned a negative result a day later following a subsequent examination at a private laboratory in Lahore.
