The overseas players was reportedly England’s Alex Hales, who was representing the Karachi Kings. The Englishman later on denied any such news.
Now, another English cricketer Chris Jordan has commented about the PSL and how Alex Hales may have got the PSL suspended. Chris Jordan revealed that everything was normal until Alex Hales talked to the players after developing symptoms.
“I spoke to Alex when he began to feel unwell, he contacted the guys in our team to let them know what he was experiencing and from there things moved pretty quickly,” he told PA news.
“We took the test, but I wasn’t overly concerned because I had been following it quite closely. I knew it could take anyone down but also that there has been many more recoveries,” he added.
Moreover, he added that he wasn’t concerned about the coronavirus as it was under control in Pakistan at that time. Chris Jordan was one of the many overseas players who decided to stay and play the complete PSL when the first few cases were reported in Pakistan.
