Rising cases of the corona, PSL 6 postponed
Karachi: PSL 6 has been postponed due to increasing cases of coronavirus. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has given foreign players the option to skip the ongoing sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) after 19 positive code 19 tests. Australian all-rounder Dan Christian, who was playing for the Karachi Kings, has decided to withdraw from the event.
Meanwhile, Karachi Kings director Wasim Akram will not take part in the event. According to the details, seven players and one support staff officer have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, which has raised questions about the PCB’s bio-secure bubble arrangements and the safety of foreign players.
Quetta Gladiators Tom Benton and Islamabad United’s Fawad Ahmed and Lewis Gregory have already tested positive.
Sources also revealed that Peshawar Zalmi’s head coach Darren Sammy and captain Wahab Riaz were allowed to join the team after just one day’s quarantine, after which the other players were relieved. The move came after Zalmai refused to take the field against the Lahore Qalandars without a pair. The families of the players were also included in the bio-secure bubble without being quarantined. They were also seen mingling with the players in the stands of the National Stadium in Karachi.
