Mahmudullah COVID-19 Positive, Will Not Travel To Pakistan For PSL 2020 Playoffs

1 min read

Bangladeshi cricketer Mahmudullah Riyad has become the latest in a long list of cricketers to contract coronavirus. The all-rounder was slated to play in the postponed PSL 2020 along with a number of Bangladeshi players. However, the Pakistan Super League playoffs will now feature just one player from the country – batsman Tamim Iqbal. Mahmudullah will go into mandatory quarantine and will not be allowed to fly out of the country until he returns two negative tests 24 hours apart. The Multan Sultans, who had roped in Mahmudullah instead of Moeen Ali, will now have to look for a third replacement, as it seems unlikely that he will feature in the tournament. Mahmudullah was supposed to leave Dhaka on November 9 and announced this week that while he did not have any major symptoms other than a cold, he got himself tested before leaving for the PSL. He confirmed that he had tested positive for the virus twice and is in self-isolation now. There is no news about his family or other players/staff he may have come in contact with.
