Pacer Haris Rauf has finally tested negative for Covid-19 but will have to return a second negative test before being eligible to travel to England, Daily Jang reported.
Rauf, after undergoing the test for the umpteenth time, finally appeared virus-free. In the event that the pacer tests negative again, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will have to make special arrangements to send him to England.
Earlier, Amir had excused himself from the tour due to the expected birth of his daughter but with Rauf testing positive repeatedly and no imminent sign of improvement, team management decided to send the veteran left-armer to England, contrary to the original plan.
The national team will kick off their three-match Test series at Old Trafford in Manchester from August 5.
