KARACHI ( REPORTBEAT ) – “The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to postpone the ongoing sixth edition of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL), after multiple positive Covid-19 cases.
According to details, seven players and one support staff official had tested positive for the virus which led to question marks over PCB’s bio-secure bubble arrangements and reservations from foreign players.
Quetta Gladiators’ Tom Banton and Islamabad United’s Fawad Ahmed and Lewis Gregory were among the players who tested positive.
Sources have also revealed that players relaxed after Peshawar Zalmi’s Head Coach Daren Sammy and skipper Wahab Riaz were reintegrated with the other members of the squad without following the proper bio-secure protocols. The step was taken after Zalmi refused to take the field against Lahore Qalandars without the duo.
Players’ families also joined the bubble without spending time in quarantine and proper testing. They were also seen mingling with players in the stands at the National Stadium in Karachi.
