Apart from the seven players, one support personnel - the masseur - also contracted the illness after the cricket body had 35 tests carried out for COVID-19 in Karachi, Lahore, and Peshawar. The PCB will now facilitate their travel to the United Kingdom, where they'll join the squad in Worcester ahead of next month's series against England.
The players were retested on Monday, June 29, following a first negative test on June 26, the Pakistan Cricket Board said in a statement, adding that they will now start making travel arrangements for the players.
Pakistan are due to face England in a three-Test series later this summer, while the tour will also include three T20 internationals, with live coverage on Sky Sports.
With as many as 10 players testing positive for Coronavirus from the initial round of tests, the board, eager to ensure a conduct of the series, named a reworked 20-man squad with the likes of fast bowler Musa Khan and keeper-bat Rohail Nazir flying out to the United Kingdom in the first batch on June 28. However, Imran Khan, Kashif Bhatti, Haider Ali and Haris Rauf tested positive for a second time. The team is in Worcestershire where it will complete a 14-day isolation period on July 13. This first fixture in the three-match series will mark the return of major worldwide cricket from lockdown.
