The two-member fact-finding panel of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will submit its report on the Covid-19 outbreak reported in the bio-secure bubble of Pakistan Super League (PSL) edition six that led to its suspension on Friday.
The PCB confirmed the development in a statement released on Wednesday afternoon, The News reported today.
The sixth edition of country’s premier T20 tournament was postponed after several players and staff members had tested positive for Covid-19.
Following the incident, the PCB named a two-member fact-finding panel, including infectious disease experts Faisal Mehmood and Salma Mohammad Abbas, to review the bio-secure protocols and bylaws put in place during the event.
They were tasked to carry out a holistic and detailed review of the Covid-19 SOPs being followed in PSL this year, identify any gaps and advise as to the reasons why the bio-secure environment did not remain Covid-free.
The panel was expected to submit the report by March 31, however, the process has been delayed for two days and the report will now be submitted to the PCB chairman Ehsan Mani by the end of this week.
