Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir is set to travel to England on July 24, replacing Haris Rauf in the squad. Rauf has tested positive for coronavirus, yet again.
Amir, had earlier opted out of the England series due to personal reasons. The 28-year-old chose to be with his wife for the birth of their second child.
The couple welcomed a baby girl last week following which Amir communicated his decision to be included in the squad. Reportedly, Amir has already undergone a Covid-19 test and will need to test negative one more time as per the bio-secure protocols.
Apart from Amir, masseur Mohammad Imran will also travel to England after testing negative for the COVID-19 second time.
"Fast bowler Mohammad Amir and masseur Mohammad Imran will travel to England on Friday morning after their second Covid-19 tests returned negative," PCB said in a release.
"As per the revised COVID-19 regulations, Imran is categorised as a low risk after having recovered from the virus and, as such, will be integrated with the national side after one negative test, whereas Amir will remain in self-isolation until he returns two negative tests," it added.
