Pak vs Eng first test might face delay due to illness of England players

The first Test between Pakistan and England may start later than expected because 14 members of the travelling team missed today’s practice session due to a virus infection.

The PCB and ECB are in discussions about when to start the first Test as certain England players are battling viral infections, according to PCB’s tweet.

Before the first Test against Pakistan in Rawalpindi, which begins on December 1, the BBC revealed earlier today that at least 14 members of the England team have been afflicted with a virus.

Around eight players are among the squad members who have been impacted by the illness, according to the BBC.

The players of the travelling team and coaches received a recommendation to relax at the hotel on Wednesday. Only five players participated in an optional training session, out of a total playing squad of 16.

The virus in the squad was verified by an ECB statement; however, the number of people who contracted the viral disease was not mentioned.
