New Zealand’s Ministry of Health said that another member
of the touring Pakistan squad has been tested positive for the novel
coronavirus.

The number of affected players have risen to eight. The health ministry confirmed the development in a statement on its website.

“There is one new case of COVID-19 to report in managed
isolation in New Zealand today,” the statement read. “There are no
new community cases. This person is a member of the Pakistan cricket squad and
was one of the three cases reported as under investigation yesterday. They have
now been confirmed to have an active COVID-19 infection. The two other cases
remain under investigation.”

The development is a daunting one for the Green Caps who are
not allowed to train unless the Canterbury DHB medical officer of health is
assured that the training activities are unlikely to transmit the disease.

Babar Azam’s side are in New Zealand where they are
scheduled to play three T20Is and two Tests this month.
