The two-member fact-finding panel of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has submitted its report to PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani on the Covid-19 outbreak reported in the bio-secure bubble of Pakistan Super League (PSL) edition six.
The PCB will now review the report in detail and decide on the next course of action.
The sixth edition of country’s premier T20 tournament was postponed after several players and staff members had tested positive for Covid-19.
Following the incident, the PCB had named a two-member fact-finding panel, including infectious disease experts Faisal Mehmood and Salma Mohammad Abbas, to review the bio-secure protocols and bylaws put in place during the event.
They were tasked to carry out a holistic and detailed review of the Covid-19 SOPs being followed in PSL this year, identify any gaps and advise as to the reasons why the bio-secure environment did not remain Covid-free.
The panel was initially expected to submit the report by March 31, however, the process was delayed for reasons unknown.
