PCB committee to submit findings over events leading to postponement of PSL 6

The two-member fact-finding committee will submit their findings of the events that led up to the postponement of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 6 to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman, Ehsan Mani, by the end of the week. Originally the report was due to be submitted by 31 March, however, the process has been delayed by two days due to unknown reasons. ------------------------------

PCB appointed a two-member committee, consisting of disease experts, Syed Faisal Mehmood and Salma Mohammad Abbas, to find out the reasons behind the poor management of the bio-secure bubble and the spread of COVID-19 within the bubble during the sixth edition of PSL.

PSL 6 was postponed indefinitely as the conditions worsened and numerous players contracted the virus. The tournament got off on the wrong foot on the eve of the opening match of the tournament. Peshawar Zalmi head coach, Darren Sammy, and captain, Wahab Riaz, violated the COVID-19 protocols as they met with the franchise owner, Javed Afridi, who was not part of the bio-secure bubble.

Although the incident was not the main reason behind the COVID-19 outbreak in the camp, it did not portray a good picture. ------------------------------

------------------------------

The tournament is rumored to restart in the month of June but the dates have not been finalized as of yet. Previously, PCB had announced to release the schedule of the remaining games by the end of last week but no development has been made in this regard.
