KARACHI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) ordered Peshawar Zalmi Captain Wahab Riaz and its West Indies coach Darren Sammy to quarantine themselves for next three days, as they meet team owners Javed Afridi during a practice session.
According to the sources, the both players now required two negative tests during the three-day quarantine period. They can re-enter the bio-secure bubble in accordance with the protocols. However, the PCB did not disclose the name of the players in its statement.
“The PCB is disappointed that two members of one of the sides showed carelessness and violated the bio-secure bubble protocols by coming into a contact with a person who was not part of the bubble,” the statement added.
Because of the PCB’s restriction, Captain Wahab Riaz cannot play first Peshawar Zalmi’s match against Lahore Qalandars to be held in Karachi tomorrow.
On the other hand, a player from another franchise team who had shown symptoms and was in isolation, has tested positive. He will now remain in quarantine for 10 days and will require two negative tests in order to integrate again with the side in accordance with the applicable re-entry protocols.
Note, PSL 6 is scheduled to start from today at the iconic National Stadium, Karachi. Defending champions Karachi Kings will take on Quetta Gladiators after a glittering opening ceremony.
