Lahore: Batsman Fakhr Zaman has been ruled out of the New Zealand tour. Fakhr is suffering from fever and has not recovered from the Pakistan team’s tour.
The decision to withdraw Fakhr from the tour was made with the health of the remaining members of the squad as a top priority.
As soon as Fakhr found out about his condition, he was left alone in the team hotel in Lahore. The PCB’s medical panel is proud to be in touch.
Dr. Sohail Saleem, Dr. of the team, said: On Saturday, Fakhr received a report of COVID-19 test which turned out to be negative but today he has a fever. As soon as his condition was reported, he was separated from the rest of the squad at the Team Hotel. We are constantly monitoring his condition and hope for his speedy recovery. However, he is unable to travel with the squad and has been withdrawn from the touring party.
Pakistan and Pakistan Shaheens contingent will leave Lahore for New Zealand on Monday morning.
