Naseem Shah set to join PSL 2021 bio-secure bubble

The Pakistan fast bowler was initially expelled for producing an outdated Covid-19 negative certificate.

Pakistan fast bowler Naseem Shah is all set to join the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 bio-secure bubble in Lahore, days after he was expelled after he came in with an outdated Covid-19 negative certificate.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) protocols clearly state all players heading to Abu Dhabi for the PSL must produce a Covid-19 negative certificate not more than 48 hours prior to their arrival in the team hotel. the 18-year-old fast bowler was looking to enter the bubble on Monday (May 24) but presented a test taken on May 18. 

The last 20 games of the postponed tournament will be held in the UAE. 

Shah is supposed to be the key player for Quetta Gladiators in the PSL. He rose to fame with his pace when he made his test debut against Australia in November 2019 and then grabbed a hat trick in a test match against Bangladesh at Rawalpindi last year. He has played in nine test matches and grabbed 20 wickets.

The PCB has not yet announced the schedule of the remaining 20 PSL games in Abu Dhabi. The league was postponed in March when several players and support staff among the six franchises tested positive for COVID-19.
