The PCB also decided to fly out masseur Mohammad Imran on the request of team management. Both Amir and Imran underwent COVID-19 tests on Monday and will need a second test to be eligible to fly to England. They are expected to make the trip this weekend if both tests come back negative.
Reserve wicketkeeper Rohail Nazir will be released from the squad once Amir joins the team. Pakistan is scheduled to play three test matches and three Twenty20s against England. The first test starts on Aug. 5.
