A foreign cricketer is reported to have misbehaved with the authorities and violated the SOPs after testing positive for Covid-19 during the sixth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Karachi.

The Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) fact-finding committee’s investigation has revealed that a foreign player was in the hotel’s swimming pool the day after his coronavirus test returned positive.

Following that, the security officials reprimanded the player and asked him to go back to his room immediately fearing Covid-19 spread. The player, however, lost his temper and insulted the security officials while refusing to enter his room.

A two-member investigative panel submitted its report to the PCB chairman Ehsan Mani earlier this month. The report investigated the Covid-19 outbreak reported in tournament’s bio-secure bubble while reviewing the protocols and bylaws put in place during the event.

Sources said that the PSL 6 fact-finding report clearly states that those who were supposed to assert their authority failed to do so. They added that a franchise also blackmailed the PCB.

Other credible sources revealed that some board officials supervising the PSL affairs also started to panic when the Covid-19 cases grew; adding that one responsible official even left to Lahore amid the crisis. 

PSL 2021 was postponed after a Covid-19 outbreak was reported in the tournament’s bio-secure bubble in Karachi in which multiple players and officials tested positive for the virus.
