PSL: Coronavirus outbreak prompts foreign players’ exodus

By

LAHORE: In light of the growing number of coronavirus cases in Pakistan, many foreign players have chosen to leave the country despite only being four days into the Pakistani Super League (PSL) season five.

One of the most important decisions made during the viral outbreak, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced that it would keep all remaining matches behind closed doors to limit the spread of the virus. The tournament duration was also shortened to finish as short as possible and on Friday, PCB gave all foreign and local players the option to withdraw their participation in the tournament if they so wished.

So far, a total of 14 players and one team official have left the tournament and have chosen to return home.
