The mystery surrounding Mohammad Hafeez’s COVID-19 test results continues to get murkier as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) mulls disciplinary action against the player for not following quarantine protocol.
Hafeez, who had tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday when the board conducted the first round of tests, announced on Wednesday that a report from a private medical facility where he got tested showed that he was Covid-19 negative.
The Shaukat Khanum Memorial hospital, which conducted the first round of tests on players and officials, was once again asked to do a retest of the earlier sample they had taken from Hafeez and it came positive for Covid-19.
This has reportedly upset the PCB who decided to give him a rap on his knuckles.
“This is a very intriguing situation for the board. It will be interesting to see what is the result of the second test taken today of the 10 players, who tested positive in the first test earlier this week will come,” PTI quoted a source as saying.
Meanwhile, the PCB has stated that the results of all tests will come out on Saturday.
“That is why he took a second test privately as a precautionary measure he had no intention to embarrass the authorities,” the source said.
