PSL 6 mania was at its full bloom with hyperactive energies when a piece of tragic news saddened the cricket freaks. The sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League has been postponed due to rising COVID-19 cases among the players and officials involved in the tournament, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Thursday. Memes and Tears on Twitter as PSL 6 Postponed Due to COVID-19.
According to the Statement,
“Following a meeting with the team owners and considering the health and wellbeing of all participants is paramount, the Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to postpone the Pakistan Super League 6 with immediate effect. The decision was made after seven cases were reported in the competition, which had started on 20 February.
The PCB, embark on an immediate step to postpone the biggest event of the country. The decision is taken for the safe and secure passage of all participants, and arrange repeat PCR tests, vaccines, and isolation facilities to the six participating sides.
Arrangements are made for the players who are intended to fly their country, while preparations are on track to get officials vaccinated against coronavirus.
PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan held a media conference at the National Stadium to discuss the tournament’s postponement. He said about the situation,
“We had to put PSL on hold as they were not “effectively” able to enforce the standard operating procedures required for a biosecure bubble. PCB will be looking for “other windows” to hold the remaining matches of the PSL 6 at a later date. What’s taking place right now is that we are carefully and slowly exiting players from our environment so that we can safely get them out and they can start to travel wherever they need to travel. It’s firmly our belief that we will find a window and finish those [remaining] matches. The PSL had to deal with a “minor breach” at the start of the tournament and that did everything they could to respond to it. With any SOPs for a biosecure bubble it takes partnerships, it takes discipline, it takes self-policing. And I think these are really important factors for us all to remember. It was not about a blame game but ensuring the bubble was a “collective effort”. It was everyone’s responsibility “to police and self-police that environment”. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do it effectively enough hence we find ourselves in this situation today.”
