Karachi: In the opening match of PSL 6, Peshawar Zalmi will not get along with captain Wahab Riaz.
Peshawar Zalmai captain Wahab Riaz along with coach Darren Sammy had met the owner outside the biosecure zone. The incident took place during a practice match yesterday. Due to this the team’s photoshoot with the trophy has also been postponed to Saturday.
A PCB statement said a team player and official had been sent in isolation for three days for violating the biosecure bubble. Both met with a third person outside the BioSecure bubble. And both must have two negative test results before rejoining the squad.
According to sources, Peshawar Zalmi will decide the new captain in the match against Lahore Qalandars on Sunday in place of Wahab Riaz on Saturday. Shoaib Malik is a prominent candidate.
On the other hand, the second test of another franchise player has also come positive. But since he is already in isolation, the team will not be affected.
