Pakistan’s 34 member squad leaves for South Africa via chartered flight
ISLAMABAD – The 34-member squad of the Pakistan cricket team left for South Africa via a chartered flight on Friday to play three One-Day Internationals and four Twenty20 Internationals.
The white ball squad comprises 21 players and 13 officials who boarded the flight from Allama Iqbal International Airport to Johannesburg.
Green shirts will undergo Covid-19 testing and a three-day quarantine upon arrival in South Africa. The squad will be allowed to train during that period.
After three ODIs and four T20Is against protease, the squad will then fly to Bulawayo on April 17 for three T20Is and two Tests against Zimbabwe.
On Thursday, middle-order batsman Saud Shakeel had been withdrawn from the squad after suffering a quadriceps tear in his left leg during a practice match in the Punjab capital.
