The Pakistani Super League was suspended on Thursday after the discovery of seven cases of the coronavirus, the country’s cricket committee said. The Twenty20 competition, which began on February 20, was suspended “with immediate effect,” according to a statement from the Pakistan Cricket Board. “The decision was made after seven cases were reported during the competition,” said a statement on the Pakistan Cricket Board website. The CCP “will focus on the safe and secure passage of all participants, and organize repeat PCR testing, vaccines and isolation facilities for the six participating parties,” he added.
Last year, three play-offs and the final were called off after England’s Alex Hayles showed symptoms of Covid-19.
Matches were postponed to November and took place behind closed doors, when Karachi Kings won the title.
