The PSL’s biosecure bubble became “unsafe”, with the PCB’s weak strategy being blamed for the new Corona case.
By showing leniency to Peshawar Zalmi, other teams were also shown the way to break the rules. It has also been revealed that the families of some cricketers have been allowed to join without quarantine. Holding is not without risk, last year there were 12 cases in 4 playoff matches, the number may still increase.
On the other hand, the PCB conducted the PCR test of Islamabad and Quetta Gladiators last night. All the teams were instructed to stay on their floor for one day. Now, every 4 days, BioSecure will conduct a PCR test of all the people present in the bubble, including cricketers, families, officials, and team owners. When the case of Fawad Ahmed came to light yesterday, the first rapid test of Islamabad United was conducted.
The PCB claimed to have developed a bio-secure bubble for PSL 6, but even there the corona cases have raised questions about its usefulness, sources said, adding that the board’s strategy is weak, under pressure from Peshawar Zalmai. Wahab Riaz and Darren Sammy set a negative precedent by allowing the team to join the team a day later, showing other franchises the way to break the rules, to join the families of some cricketers without quarantine. Permission has also been revealed.
