Three more Pakistan players test positive ahead of WI ODIs

The total number of COVID-19 positive cases within Pakistan's preparatory camp are now six

Three more Pakistan women's cricket team players tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday ahead of the three-match ODI series against West Indies, PCB official confirmed to PTI.

It took the total count of covid cases within the preparatory camp in Karachi to six after the other three players tested positive last Wednesday. Currently, they are undergoing mandatory quarantine until November 6.

A PCB official said that currently 12 out of the 18 players announced for the series are training at the National stadium where the first ODI is slated on November 8.

The West Indies team led by Stephanie Taylor have already reached Karachi and are presently undergoing a three-day isolation at the team hotel and they will start training from Friday.

The official said the PCB was carrying out PCR tests on a daily basis in the Pakistan women's camp so the six positive cases had come as a surprise.

"All possible bio-secure bubble regulations are being implemented and enforced but in the existing circumstances cricket has learnt to co-exist with Covid-19," he said.

Pakistan and West Indies will play three ODIs at the National Stadium in Karachi from November 8-14 as they gear up for the ICC World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe later this month.
