On the other hand, former Pakistan captain and veteran batsman Inzamam-ul-haq has started a new controversy. Inzamam strongly criticized the medical staff of PCB. Inzamam said through his YouTube channel, 'I would like to request the PCB to look into the matter properly because if you ignore them then the same incidents will happen as Hafeez got his personal test done. The board should keep these players at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore better than quarantining them in their own home.’
