Like many other overseas players, I reluctantly left the Pakistan Super League early because with COVID-19 reaching global pandemic status, I felt it was more important to be with my family rather than face a period of lockdown thousands of miles from home,” Hales said in a statement after the PCB’s comment.
“I returned to the UK in the early hours of Saturday morning feeling perfectly fit and healthy and with absolutely no symptoms of the virus,” he added.
“However, I awoke early on Sunday morning having developed a fever and followed the governments’ advice of self-isolation, a process I am obviously still following having developed a dry and persistent cough.”
“At this stage, it has not been possible to be tested although I am hopeful that might be the case later today so I can get absolute confirmation of my current health status,” he added.
