The Pakistan cricket team management has given leave to all-rounder Shoaib Malik, so that he can return home to deal with a personal issue.

The former Pakistan captain is expected to rejoin the team in 10 days’ time.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will not be making any further comments and fully expects all concerned to respect Malik’s privacy.

The Men in Green are currently on a tour of England and Wales, for a one-off T20I and five-match ODI series, ahead of the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup.
