Initial investigation reveals first member who returned COVID-19 positive in PSL 6


Lahore: Just after the announcement of a two-member independent panel to find loopholes in the bio-secure bubble of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season six, it has been revealed that Islamabad United’s Fawad Ahmed was not the first to test COVID-19 positive.

According to reports, Multan Sultans’ integrity officer was the first individual to test COVID-19 positive. The official didn’t undergo a mandatory isolation period and was allowed to travel home.

The integrity officer was also part of Sultans’ dugout and Fawad Ahmed fell victim to COVID-19 days after the Integrity Officer’s test came out positive.

Note, Fawad was tested positive on March 1 which led to the postponement of Quetta Gladiators-Islamabad United’s clash.

Three more participants part of the event were tested positive the following day after all the teams underwent PCR test.

On March 4, three more members from two different franchises came out COVID-19 positive, resulting in the postponement of the PSL 6.
