Pakistan Cricketer isolated after posing for picture with fan

Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has been placed in isolation following a biosecurity breach where he posed for a photo with a member of the public.

The photo, which Hafeez posted on Twitter, was taken on the golf course adjacent to the Ageas Bowl’s on-site hotel where the Pakistan team are staying. It is part of the squad’s bio-secure bubble.

When alerted to the breach, Pakistan immediately placed Hafeez in isolation.

In a statement, Pakistan said: “As it was evident from the photograph that Hafeez had breached the two-metre social distancing protocol and following a consultation process with the team doctor, the team management has decided to isolate him until he returns a negative Covid-19 test. (SkySports)
