PSL gets postponed after players contracted coronavirus

Following reports on Thursday morning that three more players have tested positive for Covid-19, the remainder of the 2021 Pakistan Super League has been postponed.

After an emergency consultation with the PCB and the franchises, the decision was made. The three new cases added to the number of seven positives in the tournament bubble on Thursday, six of which were matches.

The decision to call of the PSL  made “following a consultation with the team owners and taking into account the fitness and well-being of all involved,” according to the PCB.

The board’s immediate attention will be on “ensuring the safe and stable passage of all applicants, as well as arranging for repeat PCR checks, vaccines, and isolation facilities to be given to the six participating sides.”

Fourteen of the match’s 34 scheduled fixtures have been played. The three most recent incidents, according to the PCB, come from two independent teams.

After registering symptoms on Wednesday afternoon, they were checked. The board stated that the new cases did not originate from any of the teams that competed in Wednesday’s double-header, ruling out players from the Karachi Kings, Peshawar Zalmi, Multan Sultans, and Quetta Gladiators.

The PCB first identified a case on March 1, when Fawad Ahmed, an Australian legspinner for Islamabad United, tested positive for the disease hours before the season’s 12th match.

Gladiators’ Tom Banton later announced on his Twitter account that he was one of the good events.
