LAHORE: About 233 players from six franchises of HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) staff will leave Lahore and Karachi for Abu Dhabi on Wednesday morning on chartered flights. The remaining 20 matches of the league are likely to be temporarily from June 5 to 20.

According to the PCB, about 168 people will travel on a chartered flight from Lahore while 65 will leave Abu Dhabi from Karachi. All the cricketers available in Pakistan for the league have been in critical condition since Monday at a local hotel where the second test of Code-19 was taken on Tuesday and their reports will be released before the Abu Dhabi planes depart.
The PCB said that if a player or official has a positive result, he will not go to Abu Dhabi.
It should be noted that the PCB had applied for UAE visas for 370 people, including players, officials and broadcasters. The final schedule of the remaining matches of the league will be announced after the issuance of visas to the citizens of India and South Africa.
According to the PCB, majority of Indian and South African staff visas have been issued and once all this is found, the final schedule of the league will be released. A fine of up to ten days is mandatory for Indians and South Africans as both countries are on the red list for being included in the codes of several countries. However, after eight days of stabilization, they can resume their duties under strict SOPs.
