The things are getting worse for Pakistan Cricket Team as there are three more members got tested positive for COVID-19. Already seven players were tested positive for COVID-19 and now with three more, the situation gone from control and stimulated towards getting worse. They are even at the final warning from the New Zealand Cricket Board for breaking rules of Bio-bubble secure. They didn’t followed the strict quarantine restrictions which was amended by the New Zealand Board which eventually made an increase in the coronavirus cases.
Pakistan tour of New Zealand includes three T20Is and two Tests. The three match of T20Is series will commence from 18th December 2020 whereas the Test series will start from 26th December 2020. It is also seen that before the T20Is series both the sides will play four day match from 10th December to 17th December
In the recent times, Dr Ashley Bloomfield, the director general of health of New Zealand had criticised Pakistan Team for demolishing quarantine rules. The members of the visiting team are supposed to be in strict quarantine to lock themselves in room but they were seen in sharing foods, roaming around the hotel without the masks which was very awful to be behaved by the visiting side in this harsh situations.
“Rather than being in their rooms, which is a requirement for the first three days, there was some mingling in the hallways, chatting, sharing food and not wearing masks. I don’t know how many times they did that, but it only needs once for us to take a dim view of it. These players signed up to the arrangements in an undertaking that made what was expected to them very clear,” stated by Dr Ashley Bloomfield.
“At the moment, they are all required to be in their rooms, which was the requirement anyway. The training exemption would not have kicked in until after we had the results of the day three testing, if we were happy with the results,” Ashely said to New Zealand’s public service radio broadcaster.
Even the same way Pakistan Cricket Board CEO Wasim Khan had also quoted that if the squad members breaches the quarantine rule yet again then they will definitely call back home. He clearly ensured in the message that this is now related to the national pride and if sustains again then it could reach towards an embarrassment moment for the whole nation if the team is sent back to home without any match being played.
