PCB taking cautions for Covid-19 positive players in PSL-6

Pakistan Cricket Board has confirmed three more players from two different teams have tested positive for Covid-19 and they will now self-isolate for 10 days. The three players were not part of the sides that featured in HBL Pakistan Super League 6 double-header, and had been tested in the afternoon after showing symptoms.

The HBL PSL 6 organizing committee will hold a virtual meeting with the team owners and managements later on Thursday, following which a further update will be provided.

Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to offer SARS-Coronavirus Vaccine doses to all participants of the HBL Pakistan Super League 6, becoming the first cricket board to use the vaccine that produces protection against the Covid-19 virus.

The decision has been made in the line with the PCB’s duty of care policy and to ensure all participants of the league remain safe and healthy during the event, which concludes on 22 March.

The vaccine doses will be administered on Thursday and will be offered to all those inside the bio-secure bubble. However, it will solely be the players and officials’ decision if they want to get the vaccine shots.

The PCB have been in discussions  with the federal and provincial government officials, highlighting the national cricket teams’ international engagements and commitments as well as the significance, reputation, integrity and credibility of the HBL PSL6, which has become one of the most popular leagues in the world.

“The PCB takes health, safety and wellbeing of its players and officials very seriously. In line with our duty of care policy, we have acquired a small allocation of SARS-Coronavirus Vaccine, which will be offered to all those inside the bio-secure environment created for the HBL Pakistan Super League 6.

“The players and officials will be under no obligation to have the vaccine. The vaccinations will be administered on Thursday morning by qualified health workers, strictly in line with government protocols.

Additionally, all 112 members of the broadcast crew and the National Stadium as well as PCB staff have also been tested.

“While we live in these challenging times, the vaccine has been sourced to provide an added level of protection and comfort for players and all personnel inside the bubble. We will continue to operate responsibly in our duty to those involved in the tournament.”
