Pakistan cricketer Haris Rauf, who was tested positive for coronavirus over a month ago, has now tested negative for the contagion disease. With this, Haris is eligible to join the Pakistan cricket team in England. He will be flying out on Friday morning.
The Pakistani cricketer underwent 6 tests for COVID-19 until July 20, out of which five turned positive. Afterward, one of the test results came negative. However, according to the regulations he needed to provide successive negative results to be eligible to travel to join the Pakistan squad.
Rauf was struggling to clear the COVID-19 test. Therefore, the chief selector and head coach Misbah ul Haq called up Mohammad Amir back. Earlier. Amir had pulled out of the tour due to a clash with the expected dates of the birth of his child. However, the fast-bowler made himself available after his wife gave birth to a child.
Can't thank enough Allah for the blessings He bestowed upon me during my tough times & fight against the epidemic COVID-19.
الحمدلله tested negative and feeling absolutely fine and well. Thank you everyone who extended their prayers & well wishes.
