Three members of the Pakistan women’s cricket team shortlisted for the home series against West Indies have tested positive for Covid-19, the cricket board stated on Thursday.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed that three players participating in the pre-series camp at the Hanif Mohammad High-Performance Centre in Karachi returned positive results during routine Covid-19 testing.
“Players with positive Covid-19 tests have been quarantined for 10 days, which ends on November 6,” the cricket board said in a statement.

The remaining squad will also remain in isolation until November 2 and undergo tests every other day, starting tomorrow, to minimise the chances of the spread of the virus, it added.
The PCB clarified that all members called for the pre-series camp had joined the bio-secure bubble after returning two negative tests.
The camp was organised for preparations ahead of West Indies women’s cricket team’s tour to Pakistan for three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) next month. All the matches will be played at Karachi's National Stadium on November 8, 11, and 14.
A successful series will pave way for the arrival of the West Indies men's cricket team for a full series in December.
