Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that a player has tested positive for coronavirus on Friday night.

An opening ceremony of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 will be aired on Saturday (today). The opening match will also be played today.

The player had earlier showed symptoms and had gone in isolation. The identity has not been disclosed. He will remain in quarantine for at least 10 days, according to sources.

Moreover, another cricketer and an official from one of the teams have gone into isolation too for three days.

PCB mentioned in the statement, “The two individuals will now require two negative tests during the three-day quarantine period before they can re-enter the bio-secure bubble in accordance with the re-entry protocols,”

“The PCB is disappointed that two members of one of the sides showed carelessness and violated the bio-secure bubble protocols by coming into a contact with a person who was not part of the bubble.”

“He will now remain in quarantine for 10 days and will require two negative tests in order to integrate again with the side in accordance with the applicable re-entry protocols,”

“All players, player support personnel, match officials, and family members are once again reminded to diligently follow the PCB COVID-19 Protocols as the PCB will not allow anyone to affect the integrity and credibility of the tournament,” it added.
