Shoaib Malik likely to join Pakistan team on August 15
LAHORE (City News) – The PCB is planning to fly-out T20 specialist Shoaib Malik to Southampton on August 15, provided he returns two negative Covid-19 tests as per the agreed protocols and processes, said an official press release.
Shoaib will be part of the squad for the three T20Is against England, which will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester, on 28 August, 30 August and 1 September.
The PCB had approved Shoaib’s request for delayed departure so that he could spend some time with his family, whom he had not met since the start of the year.
Meanwhile, assistant coach Shahid Aslam will return to Manchester on 8 August. He had arrived in Lahore last week to attend his father’s funeral.
