The Pakistan Cricket Board has confirmed that an unnamed player taking part in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

The development was confirmed by the PCB in a press release in the early hours of Saturday morning.

“A player from another franchise team who had shown symptoms and was in isolation has tested positive,” the press release stated. “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.”

This is the first COVID-19 case reported among the players and officials taking part in the competition.

The sixth edition of the PSL is set to begin Saturday where the hosts and defending champions Karachi Kings will face Quetta Gladiators at the National Stadium in Karachi.

    We doctors are very much disturbed, AKUH, NIBD, LNH, roads jam, reaching on duties late, due to alternative roots.
    Just suggesting to make it possible, for karachi people, to organize matches out of city, or at bahria university, or make it possible to cordon off the whole stadium with highly trained security personels, if there are security issues.
