Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Hafeez has apparently breached biosecurity protocols when he took a picture with a member of the public, it emerged on Wednesday.

Hafeez has shared the photo with a lady at the golf course adjacent to the on-site hotel at the Ageas Bowl, on Twitter on Wednesday morning, with a caption saying: “Met an inspirational young lady today morning [sic] at the golf course. She is 90+ & living her life healthy & happily. Good healthy routine.”

As being report, if Hafeez is found to have breached protocols, he would likely have to self-isolate in his hotel room for five days and return two negative Covid-19 tests before joining back up with the team. 

As per the new COVID-19 protocols the team members have to avoid interaction with anyone outside the biosecure bubble since the course is still open to the public.

However, Hafeez is currently not playing Test matches and is in the UK for the three-match T20I series starting August 28.

Both England and Pakistan teams are being kept in two different bio-secure bubbles that allow them to interact only with the players and support staff of their own teams.

In a case where a player needs injury attention on the field, the medical staff will attend to him while wearing protective masks and gloves.

During the course of the series, no outside interaction with any of the players of the two teams is allowed.

Recently, England’s Jofra Archer was found guilty of breaching this protocol after he headed home following the competition of the first Test against Windies in Southampton. He was then suspended from the second Test.
