The Pakistan Cricket Board was forced to take a U-turn after Peshawar Zalmi threatened to boycott the event.
The day before, Wahab Riaz and Darren Sammy had violated the biosecure bubble, which sent the two players into isolation, and Wahab Riaz’s participation in the first match was questionable.
However, a big drama was witnessed at a hotel in Karachi today when the Lahore Qalandars team sat on the bus for more than half an hour and Peshawar Zalmi’s squad did not arrive.
Peshawar Zalmi’s squad refused to go without captain Wahab Riaz and coach Darren Sammy, and all attempts by PCB officials to persuade them failed. Wahab Riaz and Sammy were allowed to join the team despite not wanting to see the match in jeopardy.
The PCB spokesperson further said that while regretting the violation by the team management, it has promised to be cautious in all respects in the future. Has been allowed to join.
Both met with a third person outside the BioSecure bubble, and both must have two negative test results before rejoining the squad.
A statement issued by the PCB said that for the Pakistan Cricket Board, the health and safety of all those associated with the HBL Pakistan Super League Six is of utmost importance. The Pakistan Cricket Board will not allow anyone to affect the integrity and credibility of the tournament.
