Pakistani fast bowler Naseem Shah tests positive for Covid-19 | Cricket News

LAHORE: Pakistani fast bowler Naseem Shahi has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss the remaining two Twenty20s against England, the Pakistani Cricket Board said Thursday.
Shah was released from hospital on Thursday after being diagnosed with pneumonia and the PCB said the fast bowler felt “much better”.
“Shah is back at the team hotel where he will follow all Covid-19 protocols,” the PCB said in a statement.
Pakistan will leave for New Zealand next Monday to take part in a triangular Twenty20 series that also includes Bangladesh.
The PCB did not clarify whether the fast bowler will accompany the team to New Zealand.
Shah played just one game in a seven-game streak against England in Karachi before being rested. He returned expensive figures of 0-41 from his four overs in the first match, which England won by six wickets.
He was hospitalized late Tuesday in Lahore with a chest infection and fever.
Pakistan lead the series 3-2 with narrow back-to-back wins at Karachi and Lahore in the last two matches as England failed to chase under-performing totals.
The remaining two games will be played in Lahore on Friday and Sunday.
