However, after an emergency meeting between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the franchisees, it was decided to suspend the semi-finals and final.
As the situation improves, franchises are known to meet and then decide what to do in the future.
“Taking into account the health report, all franchisees felt it necessary not to continue the games,” said Javed Afridi on twitter.
While most players flew home, some of them will leave Pakistan on Tuesday evening or early Wednesday.
This statement can confirm that the decision was made after one of the popular international Karachi Kings cricketers experienced coronavirus symptoms. The player was found to have returned and is currently in complete isolation.
Wasim Khan, CEO of PCB, said: “We found out that a foreign player had a suspicious case and when we found out we decided to suspend the league.“
However, he did not give the player’s name.
