The Virus Affected 14 Members Of England Squad
Weird illness hits Ben Stokes and 13 other England Squad in Pakistan.

14 members of the England Squad became unwell as a result of a virus, which is big news out of Pakistan. What kind of virus it remains unknown. Their captain, Ben Stokes, is one of the injured players.

England Squad’s illness

The illness severely affected the England Test team, who is visiting Pakistan after a 17-year break. Thirteen others have also become ill. Only those players who are attending the first Test in Rawalpindi, which begins on December 1, Harry Brook, Zak Crawley, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope, and Joe Root, are unaffected (Friday), according to Test Match Special.

The status of the first Test is yet unknown. There are only two days left in the test match, and the visiting team will be unable to pitch an 11-man lineup with 14 players out due to illness.

There has been no statement on the subject from Pakistan Cricket Board or England Cricket.

Not to mention, the England squad has been enjoying the hospitality of the cricket-crazy nation since landing in Pakistan to play a Test series after 17 years. The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 final between England and Pakistan just took place, and the Three Lions prevailed to win their second championship.

The team which is under the leadership of Babar Azam will extremely get motivate to face England. They had hosted Australia earlier, who had defeated them in the Test series. Before the T20 World Cup, England recently made a brief tour to play seven T20 Internationals, which they won 4-3.

Under the direction of Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum, the Test team would be striving to do the same.

However, it would be curious to see how the series plays out on December 1 in Rawalpindi given that 14 players are ailing. Before the first Test, let’s hope the illness is not too serious and the players will fully recover.
