Former Pakistan cricketer Taufeeq Umar has tested positive for coronavirus.

Having experienced certain symptoms like fever on Saturday (May 23), Umar did no delay in getting himself tested for Covid-19.

Umar is the fourth reputed cricketer to be affected by Covid-19 after Majid Haq (Scotland), Zafar Sarfaraz (Pakistan) and Solo Nqweni (South Africa).

“I got myself tested last night after feeling a little sick last night, and the result came positive. My symptoms are not at all severe,” the left-handed batsman told Geo News. “I have isolated myself at home,” he further said, adding: “I appeal to everyone to pray for my swift recovery.”

Umar played a crucial role in Pakistan’s Test batting line-up in in the 44 Tests that he was a part of. While he wasn’t a part of the squad between 2006 and 2010, the southpaw did have ups and downs in his health right from his debut in 2001 because of excessive smoking.

The 38-year-old batsman has not announced his retirement officially. His last international game was in 2014. So far, there are no news of his health. We wish the Pakistani cricketer a speedy recovery and a healthy life ahead.
