The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday said that the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 has been postponed indefinitely after a foreign player who had left last week displayed symptoms of the coronavirus.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore with other PCB officials, PCB Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Wasim Khan said that the name of the player would not be revealed to maintain privacy. He added that the players from all the teams, the broadcasters and everyone else associated with the tournament would be tested for the virus.

At least 14 foreign players have already returned to their own countries after the PCB last week gave them the option to leave amid coronavirus fears.

The PCB chief added that the semi-final and final matches would be rescheduled before the next season of the PSL.
