Pakistan fast bowler Naseem Shah has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the remaining two Twenty20s against England, the Pakistan Cricket Board said on Thursday.
Shah was discharged from the hospital on Thursday after being diagnosed with pneumonia and the PCB said the fast bowler was feeling “much better.” He was admitted to hospital late Tuesday night in Lahore with a chest infection and fever.
Shah is back in the team hotel where he will follow all COVID-19 protocols,” the PCB said in a statement.
Shah played only one game in the seven-match series against England at Karachi before being rested. He returned expensive figures of 0-41 off his four overs in the first match, which England won by six wickets.
