Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) allowed Naseem Shah to rejoin in Pakistan Super League 2021 (PSL 2021)
The Pakistan Cricket Board has come under discussion due to the decision taken on player Naseem Shah. PCB has taken a U-turn on Naseem Shah in just four days. The PCB had banned Naseem Shah from participating in the sixth season of the Pakistan Super League for breaking the Covid-19 protocol. But now the PCB has decided to include Naseem Shah in the PSL 2021.
Naseem Shah, however, will have to submit the Corona Tates report again for entry into the bio bubble. According to reports, after the meeting of the PCB and PSL franchises, it has been agreed to include Naseem back in this tournament. Naseem Shah will have to report the corona test before pre-Isolation, after which he can enter the team hotel. After this, he can fly to Abu Dhabi when his corona report comes negative. ”
Under the Corona Protocol, players leaving Charter Plane for the remaining matches of the sixth season of the PSL were to gather in Karachi and Lahore on 24 May. Not only this but the players were also asked to bring a negative report of the Corona Test. Not only this, the condition of not being more than 48 hours old report was also imposed.
Naseem gave the report on 18 May, after which he was sent to Isolation and later released. PSL-6 chief Babar Hamid had said that it was necessary to exclude Naseem for not having any kind of risk. But now the PCB has changed its decision.
The remaining matches of the sixth season of PSL are going to be held in the UAE next month. The sixth season of PSL was started in the third week of February. But the league was postponed due to the occurrence of coronavirus.
