Quetta Gladiators’ speedster Naseem Shah has been allowed to rejoin the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) bio-bubble, after the delay in visas of some of the players and officials meant that there will be another chartered flight departing from Pakistan in the next couple of days for Abu Dhabi.

Naseem had been released from isolation in Lahore after he breached the protocols for departure from Pakistan by arriving at the designated hotel with a non-compliant RT-PCR test result.

“Quetta Gladiators pacer Naseem Shah was granted permission to re-join the HBL PSL 6 bio-bubble. He was sent home earlier this week because of a Covid-19 testing breach,” PCB said in a statement.

“Naseem’s return however is dependent on fulfilment of the Pakistan bio-bubble protocols which include testing negative within 48 hours prior to the integration in the bubble and subsequent isolation along with two repeat Covid-19 tests before boarding the next chartered flight which will leave from Pakistan,” the statement added.
