PCB favors Javed Afridi, here is why?

Sami ul Hasan Burney, the spokesperson of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has uttered a few statements favoring Peshawar Zalmi’s holder, Javed Afridi.

Afridi got limelight after Wahab Riaz and Darren Sammy were allowed to enter the stadium despite breaching the bio-bubble and COVID rules a day before the incident.

Notably, the duo met one of the officials without letting the authority know and violate the bio-secure bubble. They were supposed to be quarantines for three-days but the negative attitude and threats from Zalmi’s side forced PCB to let them enter the ground.

PZ and the owner got criticized to an immense extent. However, the PCB clarifies that they submitted a written apology and were embarrassed by the scenario.

Burney understands that Zalmi alone are not responsible for PSL winding up shortly. Sharing the video, Javed Afridi has also thanked the official for speaking in his favor although the fans are not cooled down yet.

Here are the comments:

It is totally wrong to blame the Peshawar Zalmi team for postponing the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

He also added that despite breaching the policies, no Zalmi member had been tested positive for COVID along with adding that they isolated themselves after the incident.

Not a single player or official of the Peshawar Zalmi team was tested positive which is a clear sign of their commitment towards the spirit of the game and following the SOPs to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Javed Afridi, Wahab Riaz, and Darren Sammy apologized for it and later they isolate themselves but fortunately, their tests were negative.

The written apology and medical test of the three individuals, the technical committee of the event allowed them to participate in the tournament. Sami ul Hasan Burney added.
