A team official participating in Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 was isolated after he tested positive for COVID-19.

A statement from PCB confirmed that:

“An individual” has been shifted to an isolation room in the team hotel after he tested positive for COVID-19.

While PCB desisted from revealing the individuality of the person who has been infected, sources confirmed the person belongs to the coaching staff of a participating team.

The individual had earlier tested negative before reporting to the team hotel after his task in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.

The cricket board, while authorizing the development, added that as per the PCB COVID-19 protocols, the entire squad to which the individual fitted, experienced COVID-19 tests and all returned with negative results.

This is the second example of an individual participating in PSL recurring with positive tests after reporting at the team hotel. Both will now remain in isolation until receiving two negative reports.

Previous, Mehmudullah and James Vince both of Multan Sultans had to withdraw from PSL after testing positive for COVID-19 at their respective home countries, Bangladesh and England.

The PCB has put a bio-secure bubble for the health and safety of players participating in the tournament which separates them from physical contact with anyone outside the bubble.
