Islamabad United’s player Colin Munro will not be available for the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) this year.
As per reports, he has some difficulties with finding quarantine space for his return to New Zealand after the competition.
Colin was scheduled to head straight to Pakistan after the result of the Big Bash League (BBL), where he is part of the Perth Scorchers squad, but the quarantine period put in place by the New Zealand government needs places to book in advance and, having late in applying, the earliest Munro would have been able to find a slot after the PSL was in the middle of the May.
Colin Munro said in his statement that,
“I’m very disappointed to be missing out because Islamabad was really good to me,”
“They retained me knowing I was going to go there straight after the Big Bash but I just couldn’t get any quarantine booked in time,”
“The PSL finishes on the 23rd [22nd] of March and I could only get back into the country in the middle of May then another two weeks on top of that. It’s tough, but the world the way it is maybe that’s a silver lining – spend some more time at home with the family and get ready for whatever is next.”
Munro has scored 248 runs at the strike rate of 147.61in the previous edition of the PSL.
PSL 6 is starting from February 20th with the match between defending champions, Karachi Kings, and former champions, Quetta Gladiators.
