PCB allows Sarfaraz, 12 others to return home after delay in issue of visas


Karachi:  The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), after consulting with Pakistan Super League (PSL) 6 medical panel decided to send 13 individuals to return home last night.

According to details, PCB allowed the players and officials to spend time with their families as there can potentially be some more delays in the issuance of the remaining visas.

As soon as the visas are processed, the players will undergo the mandatory PCR tests before boarding the first available commercial flight.

On the other hand, 12 players and officials left Lahore on Sunday evening before arriving in Abu Dhabi via Bahrain on Monday morning.

These 17 individuals were flown as per the exemption acquired from the UAE government.

PCB Director – Commercial and PSL 6 head Babar Hamid: “We regret the inconvenience that has been caused to some players and officials, but these have been due to unforeseen circumstances and unexpected challenges.

“The PCB is working hand in glove with the Abu Dhabi Sports Council and the Emirates Cricket Board, and trying its best to get all participants in Abu Dhabi in time so that we can hold the remaining tournament.”
