LAHORE – Pakistan Cricket Board has stepped up Covid induced measures ahead of the next season of the country’s flagship tournament PSL amid a rapid surge in Covid-19 cases.

Reports in local media said all players of the Pakistan Super League will have to remain under strict bio-bubble protocols during the upcoming season.

As the Pakistan Super League's fifth and sixth editions were affected badly by Covid and players and staff members contracted novel virus despite being inside a biosecure bubble, officials now planned to develop separate 'Bubble' of each team within the bio-bubble.

As per the new rules, players of different teams will not be allowed to interact in wake of the Covid spread fueled by a more contagious Omicron variant.

The last two editions even suffered suspension midway due to pandemic but now Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wants no obstructions during the tournament.
