Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) has invited about 240 players, officials, and other stakeholders to participate in the upcoming T20 National Championship to pay for its initial Covid-19 test.
The cricket game has forced all individuals participating in the game to return to two negative COVID-19 tests. Once players and others clear the first round of testing, PCB will pay for the second Covid-19 test.
PTI quoted a PCB source as saying: “Participants, officials and stakeholders must pay the initial test.”
PCB does not designate any laboratory or hospital from which participants, officials and stakeholders must conduct initial testing. The board has instructed its players to submit their initial Covid-19 report to their manager or coach for permission.
At the beginning of the summer, about 42 people accompanied by the Pakistan team went to England, and PCB paid for all the Covid-19 tests that the players and team officials had to conduct before boarding the plane to the UK.
