"Hafeez underwent the Covid-19 test late Wednesday afternoon and the result is expected at some stage on Thursday", it added.
On Tuesday, Kent announced that batsman Jordan Cox had been dropped for their next Bob Willis Trophy match after posing for a photograph with a member of the public, meaning he was forced to enter self-isolation and miss their next match this week - a similar offence to that committed by Hafeez.
He said that Shahid Aslam, assistant to head coach, has tested negative for coronavirus test and joined the cricket squad. However, he chose to get tested privately and the result turned out to be negative. Therefore, in order to be sure, he underwent two more tests, and it returned negative. Consequently, he was allowed to be a part of the squad for the ongoing tour.
However, Hafeez is now not playing Test matches and is in the United Kingdom for the three-match T20I series starting August 28.
Hafeez posted the photo on Twitter this morning with the caption, "Met an inspirational young lady today morning [sic] at golf course. She is 90+ & & living her life healthy & happily.Good healthy routine".
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said the team management made a decision to isolate him until he returns a negative COVID-19 test.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) issued a statement saying it has tested Hafeez for COVID-19 and will allow him to rejoin the group if he is negative. However, forgetting about the rules, the all-rounder went ahead and got a photograph clicked with a member of the public without adhering to the social distancing rules or any other precautions. The team management believes it was an inadvertent mistake, but a good reminder for everyone on the importance of following the bio-secure protocols, which have been designed for the health and safety of everyone involved in the series.
It said the team management had updated the England Cricket Board of its decision.
