Bowling coach Waqar Younis, head physiotherapist Cliffe Deacon and fielding coach Grant Bradburn are the absentees and have been struggling to return to Pakistan due to travel restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

As for Bradburn, he had already departed to New Zealand before the PSL 2020.

Head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and other management members have been in contact with the trio in terms of drafting training plans while the board plans for their safe return.
