England cricketers set to leave PSL
Amidst the novel coronavirus pandemic, England cricketers playing in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) are preparing to make hasty exits.
There have been concerns about getting stuck abroad amid the the fallen situation, and it is understood that the English stars are looking to avoid such circustances.
While the PSL still has 10 days left to run and will continue behind closed doors, the tournament committee were believed to be sorting flights for the likes of World Cup-winning trio Jason Roy, Moeen Ali and James Vince plus other England internationals such as Tom Banton, Alex Hales and Chris Jordan.
A total of 15 Englishmen are participating in the T20 extravaganza, and they could be back home by Saturday, reported Daily Mail.
As the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to go on with the tournament behind closed doors, it is likely that they would continue even with the biggest foreign stars, which could decrease the overall attraction of the competition.
Meanwhile the same prospect of playing behind closed doors is looming for the Indian Premier League (IPL) as well, without the foreign cricketers, who could be stopped from entering India because of the country’s visa restrictions.
England’s Test tour to Sri Lanka is also in major doubt after fears about coronavirus on the island intensified.
