The Pakistan Super League match between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United was postponed a day to March 2 after Fawad Ahmed tested positive for COVID-19.
Fawad had shown symptoms two days ago and was immediately isolated on Saturday evening, PSL stated in a release. In what comes as a relief, all the players from both Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators have now returned negative results.
The match was initially postponed to 9 pm on Monday before PSL’s Event Technical Committee decided to move to the next day.
“The decision to reschedule the match has been made after a careful consideration, aimed at allowing players sufficient time to relax, refocus and regroup following the testing and in the best interest of the competition,” PSL said.
“While all squad members of Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United have tested negative, players and player support personnel of the four remaining sides and the match officials will undergo rapid tests on Monday evening. The tickets for Monday’s match will be valid on Tuesday, while the unused tickets can be refunded.”
Fawad will now be allowed back into bio-bubble after returning two negative tests.
