Peshawar Zalmi’s players, Haider Ali and Umaid Asif have been pulled out of the squad ahead of the PSL 2021 final as the duo breached the COVID-19 bio bubble. Violating the protocols and failing to meet the guidelines, the Zalmi players failed to maintain social distance meeting people outside the bio-bubble.
The decision to suspend the Zalmi players has been taken by the PSL 2021 COVID-19 management panel comprising COO PCB and Director Commercial. According to the PCB’s Thursday release, Haider and Umaid did not meet any other member from the Zalmi squad and have been ordered for isolation.
The matters are even worst for Haider who has been pulled out of the pre-elected national squad for Pakistan tours of England and West Indies. The chairman of the selection committee, Wasim Khan has named in-form Sohaib Maqsood of Multan Sultans in place of Haider for the two tours.

Pakistan tours of England and West Indies: A golden opportunity for Sohaib Maqsood for a comeback ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021
Maqsood showcased an appealing cricket season scoring a pile of runs in the Pakistan Super League (PSL 6). Being a part of Sultans in the ongoing season, he is the third-highest run-getter of the extravaganza adding 363 runs playing 11 matches at an average of 40.33 striking 152.52 with one sparing match.
Maqsood registered his best performance versus Peshawar Zalmi scoring 61 runs off 31 balls. His performance has solely been improved since he has entirely focused on white-ball cricket. The batsman has assembled four fifties to pile up the mentioned runs in 11 innings. His PSL 6 numerics count 33 fours and 19 sixes. Tonight, he is once again to showcase his brilliancy versus Zalmi as the two teams will battle to clinch the HBL PSL 6 trophy in the final.
The mid-order aggressive sensation was already optimistic of getting a chance back in Pakistan Cricket ahead of the T20 World Cup. As it was some special hour, his wish has come true. Watch his batting highlights to put up your opinion on his return.
