The players and the coaching staff have been informed that the mandatory 7 day quarantine period will start from 22nd May. This time the bio bubble is going to be much more strict as compared to the previous one. Anyone who breaches the bubble will be penalized.
PSL 6 had been postponed as many players had tested positive in March.
