Three more individuals taking part in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) have tested positive for COVID-19.

The development was confirmed by the Pakistan Cricket Board Media and Communications Director Samiul Hasan on Wednesday.

“We’ve conducted 244 PCR tests yesterday and three individuals, which included two foreign players and a local support staff have tested positive for the novel coronavirus,” he said. “These three individuals along with Fawad Ahmed, who tested positive yesterday, will undergo 10-day isolation after which they can rejoin the squad.”

Sami further confirmed that the tournament and especially the match on Tuesday between Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators will go ahead as planned.

“I can confirm that the tournament will go ahead as per schedule,” he said. “I can also confirm that the match between United and Gladiators will take place at 1900 hrs today evening.”

Sami also confirmed that the arrangements have been made to keep the players and support staff safe.

“All we need to understand is that even though we have some positive cases, it doesn’t mean that the bubble is not effective,” he said. “You can look at what happened in different sporting events such as NFL, NHL, Formula 1, Premier League, and so on. There were positive cases there as well but that doesn’t mean their arrangements were not full-proof.”

Sami further confirmed that one of the three individuals who tested positive belongs to Islamabad United, whereas two are from other franchises.
