The PCB did its best to continue the Pakistan Super League despite being infected with the coronavirus last season. That attempt by the Pakistan Cricket Board proved ridiculous. Later the play-off episode had to be stopped at the moment’s notice. By the end of the year, the PCB was able to finish the 2020 PSL by organizing the remaining four matches of the PSL. Coronavirus has also hit 2021 PSL.
The match between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League yesterday has been postponed. The match was decided today as all the other players of the two teams were negative in the test.
Ahmed, who has played two T20s and three ODIs for Australia, has already been placed under quarantine. The match was then quickly postponed after Corona was caught in the test. The rest of the cricketers of the two teams have also been tested. Initially the match was postponed for two hours but it was decided to hold the match a day later. There were two corona-related incidents in the PSL. Earlier, Peshawar Zalmi captain Wahab Riaz and coach Darren Sammy had to go to a three-day quarantine to break the biological protection zone.
From now on, all the players’ corona will be tested once every four days in case of Ahmed’s corona attack. For so many days it was done once a week. According to Islamabad United, Ahmed did not break any rules even though Corona was infected. Corona-stricken Ahmed told everyone on Twitter that he was fine, ‘Thank you all for sending me all the nice messages. Please everyone pray for me. It is very necessary and everyone be careful.
The franchisee took refuge in Twitter to inform Ahmed. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a tweet that Fawad had been attacked by Corona. “One of our players, Fawad Ahmed, has been attacked by Corona and was sent to isolation two days ago. The corona test results of all the other players and officials of Islamabad United came back negative and everyone is ready to play. We wish Fawad a speedy recovery. Tigers are ready to roar tonight.
But tomorrow they did not come on the field. The PSL said in an official statement, “The Pakistan Super League’s event technical committee has decided to postpone the match between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad at 7pm Pakistan time on Tuesday.” Islamabad United’s Fawad Ahmed’s corona test was positive and all the two teams were tested. The rest of the results were negative, but the decision was made. Fawad has been in isolation since last Saturday night. After getting two negative results, he will be taken to biological protection.

Even in such a situation, PSL said as the reason for postponing the match, ‘Judging everything, the match schedule has been postponed. The players will get enough time to rest after the corona test. And to be able to regroup mentally, it is necessary for the good of the competition. The players, staff and match officials of the remaining four teams will be tested on Monday evening after all the players and officials from Quetta and Islamabad tested negative.
