Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday postponed the camp organized for elite cricketers at National High Performance Centre (NHPC) in Lahore for a week, The News reported today.

The decision was taken as a precautionary measure by PCB after an official tested positive at its headquarters on Monday, leading the Board to shut its offices for three days.

Following the incident, PCB tested all the national team players and officials at NHPC, who on Tuesday returned negative Covid-19 results.

Despite all NHPC personnel testing negative, the PCB still suspended the camp for elite cricketers saying it would take all necessary precautions regarding the coronavirus.

The PCB had started a month-long camp at NHPC last week for those cricketers who were either not participating in the PSL or knocking at the doors of international cricket or had recently lost their places in the national side.

According to the Board sources, the national team camp for the tour of South Africa is planned to be held at the NHPC from next week.

The players at the camp were Azhar Ali, Abdullah Shafiq, Abid Ali, Ahmad Bashir, Asad Shafiq, Bismillah Khan, Fawad Alam, Hammad Azam, Haris Sohail, Hassan Khan, Imran Butt, Irfanullah Shah, Kamran Ghulam, Khurram Shehzad, Muhammad Abbas, Noman Ali, Rehan Afridi, Sajid Khan, Salman Irshad, Saud Shakeel, Tabish Khan, Taj Wali, Umar Khan and Yasir Shah.
