Men’s Cricket Pakistan Super League off after positive Covid tests

THE Pakistan Super League was postponed indefinitely after three more coronavirus cases today raised the tally to seven in the Twenty20 cricket tournament.

The decision was taken by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after the owners of the six teams were reluctant to continue, even with the option of a five-day “circuit-breaker.”

 The owners “made it very clear that the players were not in a mental state to continue,” PCB chief executive Wasim Khan said in Karachi.

“The franchises felt very uncomfortable, as we did, in putting the players under any additional risk when there was no need.”

Khan admitted breaches of Covid-19 protocols in the bio-secure bubble have caused the postponement.
