The Pakistan Super League was suspended on Thursday after seven players tested positive for the coronavirus, the country's cricket board said.

The Twenty20 competition, which started on February 20, was put on hold “with immediate effect”, a Pakistan Cricket Board statement said.

“The decision was made after seven cases were reported in the competition,” a statement on the Pakistan Cricket Board website said.

The PCB “will focus on the safe and secure passage of all participants, and arrange repeat PCR tests, vaccines and isolation facilities to the six participating sides”, it added.
