Karachi Kings wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton and Peshawar Zalmi player-cum-head coach Darren Sammy will remain in 14-day isolation after participating in HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five.

While speaking to Sports Max, the wicketkeeper-batsman said that he has ‘mixed feelings’ about the isolation he will have to face upon his return to Jamaica.

“Heading home is always a great feeling for me but this time there are some mixed feelings because I think I will have to be in isolation for 14 days,” said Walton.

However, the 34-year-old was not worried about contracting the coronavirus in Pakistan as foreign cricketers had very little interaction with the public.

“From the start of the tournament due to the security protocol we had limited contact with the wider society so as a result of that we had limited contact with the virus,” he said.

Meanwhile Sammy was also optimistic about the future despite these testing times. 

“Just touchdown in St Lucia. Did my social distancing, washed my hands thoroughly, didn’t touch my mouth eyes and nose with my hands now I gotta wait 14 days before seeing the love ones even though my covid19 test came out negative a day before leaving Pakistan. We have to do what’s best to stop the spread. At least I’m home. This to shall come to pass,” said Sammy on his Instagram account.
