The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has revealed that the bio-bubble will be lifted going forward, which was imposed in 2020 amidst the Coronavirus. The outbreak halted cricket and other sporting activities across the globe owing to the pandemic situation.
The bio-bubble started all games being played behind closed doors and a critical life for the players. However, the PCB, which became the first cricket board to host its cricketing event, the PSL, without the spectators, has decided to gradually ease things.
Sami ul Hasan Burney, the media director of the board, has officially announced the implementations will be imposed from the upcoming Women’s home series versus Sri Lanka. Also, the men’s home series against the West Indies in July will also be played without any bio-bubble restriction.
PCB becomes first cricket board to lift bio-bubble
“PCB became the first cricket body in the world to adopt these restrictions. The upcoming men’s home series against West Indies in June will also be played without a bio-secure environment if the situation remains perfect.”
The major COVID protocols will not be considered, yet the players will be required to tolerate some rules. Recently, the PCB has made its domestic tournament, Pakistan Cup, successful in an open-air environment.
“However, the players and officials will be instructed to take precautionary measures and follow major SoPs including social distance from the fans,”
