Fast bowler Mohammad Amir has joined the Pakistan squad in Derby after clearing both Covid-19 tests.

Amir left for England from Lahore on 24 July and, as per the UK government’s guidelines, was in isolation for a period of five days during which he was tested twice.

Earlier, the PCB had confirmed that Amir will join the Pakistan men’s national cricket team in England following the birth of his second daughter.

The decision was taken after rookie pacer Haris Rauf, who was also part of Pakistan squad, repeatedly tested positive for the virus and was unable to travel to England. 

Old Trafford will host the first Test of the series starting on Wednesday August 5. The final two Tests will be played at the Rose Bowl from Thursday, August 13 and Friday, August 21.

The three T20Is will take place at Old Trafford on Friday, August 28, Sunday, August 30 and the final match of the tour on Tuesday, September 1.
