Hafeez in isolation breaking ‘bio-secure’ rules

Veteran Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has to stay in self-isolation for breaking the ECB’s ‘bio-secure’ rules. Hafeez took a picture with an old woman on the golf course adjacent to the team hotel in Southampton and posted it on her Twitter on Wednesday morning.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) later confirmed Hafeez’s isolation in a statement. The all-rounder has already been tested for coronavirus. He will have to stay in hotel isolation until the result is negative.

“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,” the PCB release cited by Cricbuzz said.

“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. Hafeez underwent the Covid-19 test late Wednesday afternoon and the result is expected at some stage on Thursday,”

the release added.

Hafeez, however, is not in Pakistan’s Test squad. The all-rounder is in the squad for the three-match T20 series starting on August 28.

Before coming to England, Hafeez tested positive for Covid-19. The board then reprimanded him for personal examination. After getting negative twice, he got permission to visit.
