    Six members of Pakistan's touring contingent in New Zealand have tested positive for Covid-19. According to an NZC release, four are new cases, while two of the positive results have been deemed "historical".

    It is unclear whether the six who tested positive are players or other members of Pakistan's touring party.

    The results are from tests conducted upon Pakistan's arrival in New Zealand on November 24. Each member of the squad will have to undergo a minimum of four tests while in managed isolation.

    The six who tested positive will be moved to the quarantine arm of the managed isolation facility in Christchurch where Pakistan are currently based. The team will not be able to train until investigations are completed.

    All members of the Pakistan contingent who flew out of Lahore had returned negative results from four separate tests. Opening batsman Fakhar Zaman had been left out of the tour as a precautionary measure after showing possible symptoms of Covid-19.

    NZC also revealed that some members of the Pakistan contingent had "contravened protocols" on day one of their managed isolation. "We will be having discussions with the tourists to assist them in understanding the requirements," the release said.

    A New Zealand Ministry of Health release said these breaches of protocol had been caught on CCTV, and that the team has been issued a "final warning."

    Pakistan are due to play three T20Is on December 18, 20 and 22 in Auckland, Hamilton and Napier respectively, before playing two Tests in Mount Maunganui (December 26-30) and Christchurch (January 3-7).

    There should be no embracement of being positive, millions have it. They should be embraced for not following the protocols.

    Totally agreed!

    As we all know, Covid is extremely highly contagious.
    I personally know people who took out of the world extreme steps to avoid getting Covid yet they still got it.

    Heck, with all the vetting out and precautions in place, the presidents and prime ministers of the first world countries got infected.

    But, they did their part so you can’t blame them.

    It’s a different story here though - these dumb effs don’t understand the concept of covering your a$$ so you can’t be blamed.
    No wonder there is an uproar against them now.

    Anyway, let’s hope the tour continues as planned. Looking forward to it and all the best to Pak team.

    This kid also finds ways to mess-up his life.
