Peshawar Zalmi were dealt with a major blow just two days before their playoff clash against Islamabad United as players Ben Cutting, Usman Qadir and Sohail Khan test positive for coronavirus, sources told Geo News.

According to sources, the total number of coronavirus positive cases in the Zalmi squad has climbed to four. Other than the three players, support staff member and former South African cricketer Hashim Amla has also tested positive for COVID-19.

Zalmis won their Monday's match against Qalandars in the super over, but the run rate kept them at the third position.

It should be noted that Peshawar Zalmi will be locking horns against the Islamabad United in eliminator 1 on February 24 at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
