The UAE authorities granted landing permission to South African players and the broadcast crews arriving from South Africa and India for participation in the HBL Pakistan Super League 6.
As such, their arrival in the UAE is expected in the next 48 hours. The players, support staff and officials who could not board the chartered flight to Abu Dhabi from Karachi and Lahore today due to visa delay, are also expected to arrive in Abu Dhabi in the next 48 hours in another chartered flight.
More than 200 players, support staff match and PCB staffers landed in Abu Dhabi today from Karachi and Lahore and began there isolation this evening. Meanwhile, 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.
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.
