For the next home series against the West Indies, the PCB has opted to stop COVID-19 protocols. COVID-19 testing will no longer be done on a regular basis, and gamers will no longer be required to stay within the bio-secure bubble.
Massive changes were seen on the cricket pitch two years ago when the world was devastated by the virus. Players had to deal with a lot in order to keep playing cricket around the world, from routine testing for viral infections to isolating behind the bio-secure bubble.
The cricket world is gradually returning to regular functioning, and the PCB has taken a crucial step in that direction. PCB has chosen to forego the previously required 5-day quarantine as well as the testing that was to be performed every other day.
The visitors to the forthcoming home series against the West Indies will not be tested for COVID-19 upon arrival, and tests will only be done if any symptoms are noticed. Furthermore, the bio-secure bubble’s constraints are to be lifted.
