Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq has tested positive for Covid-19 and will now be under a 10-day quarantine in Jamaica before travelling back home. The other members of the Pakistan contingent will fly back on Wednesday. 

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in a statement has said that the board is in constant touch with Cricket West Indies. The former right-handed batsman will be shifted to another hotel where he will be quarantined for 10 days.

"The PCB is constantly in touch with Cricket West Indies who have confirmed that Misbah will be shifted to another hotel for the 10-day quarantine with a medical specialist assigned to look after his health and wellbeing," a Pakistan Cricket Board release stated.

Pakistan had a decent run during their tour to West Indies after they clinched the four-match T20I series 1-0 after three games were washed out due to rain while drawing the two-Test series 1-1. 

The visitors were trailing 0-1 after the first encounter which the Caribbean side won by one wicket in a nail-biting finish but made a fine return to win the second clash by 109 runs. 

Pakistan will now host New Zealand for a three-match ODI series and five T20Is from September 17. The ODI fixtures will be played in Rawalpindi while the T20I series takes place in Lahore.
