PSL6 authorities have prepared strict protocols for the rest of the matches of Pakistan Super League-6 which will be played in bio-bubble, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday. 

Players and other officials violating the protocols will have to face severe punishments. The PCB authorities have sent the protocols to the players and officials associated with the league.

The remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 will be played from June 7 in Abu Dhabi. Players and match officials who have already arrived in the UAE, are isolated inside their hotel rooms.

No one, sans the maintenance staff of the hotel, will be allowed inside players' hotel rooms, stated the documents. 

Meeting any person who shows symptoms of the coronavirus or has tested positive for the infection will be considered a serious violation as well. 

If players are found guilty of violating the coronavirus safety protocols, the penalties can range from warnings, punishments and suspension of match fees.

If found breaching any SOPs, a player's suspension can range from one to five matches, depending upon the disciplinary committee's discretion. 

While, Sarfraz Ahmed and other six players and officials got their visas and subsequently left for Abu Dhabhi via Bahrain. These officials and players were from Karachi and Lahore.

In a latest, so far seven players and officials have not received their visas including Umar Amin, Asif Afridi and Muhammad Imran.

Separately, the PCB postponed the trials of the Lahore East senior cricket team due to rain and these will now be resumed on Wednesday. Trials for the senior team of Lahore East were scheduled at LCCA Ground.
