Note, Pakistan squad has not yet received permission from the New Zealand Department of Health for outdoor training after six members tested COVID-19 positive and protocols breaches on the first day of the team’s arrival in the country.
According to the NZ Health Ministry, the team is not allowed to train until the Canterbury DHB medical officer of health is satisfied that any training activities are unlikely to transmit COVID-19.
