Setback for Karachi Kings: 13 Players Hospitalized Due to Food Poisoning Ahead of Key Match

The Karachi Kings, a prominent franchise in the highly anticipated Pakistan Super League (PSL), encountered a significant setback on Thursday when a staggering 13 of their players fell prey to a bout of food poisoning. Among the affected athletes, the condition of South African batsman Leus du Plooy was particularly severe, necessitating his hospitalization.

This unfortunate turn of events has cast a shadow over the team, with key players such as English batsman James Vince and Australian bowler Daniels Sams also succumbing to the illness. Adding to the challenge, the team’s coach, Phil Simmons, is reported to be grappling with food poisoning as well.

Despite the adversity, the Karachi Kings remain hopeful and have expressed their determination to field a competitive team in the upcoming match against Quetta Gladiators at the National Cricket Stadium on Thursday.


The franchise, which has experienced a mixed start to the tournament with two wins in their four games, faced a setback in their recent encounter against Islamabad United.

This unexpected health crisis highlights the vulnerability of sports teams to unforeseen challenges and the importance of implementing robust health and safety measures for players and staff.

The Karachi Kings, with their resilience and commitment, are gearing up to navigate through this unexpected hurdle, aiming to regroup swiftly and deliver a compelling performance in the ongoing PSL matches.
