An individual has been shifted to an isolation room within the team hotel after his COVID-19 test returned positive.
As per the PCB COVID-19 Protocols, he should have traveled to Karachi only after receiving a negative result from the home test. However, upon arrival in Karachi, the PCB Medical and Sports Sciences received the positive result, following which he was quarantined immediately.
The individual will now stay in isolation until he returns two negative tests.

Multan Sultans may now choose a local or a foreign player as a replacement. The playoffs of the Pakistan Super League 2020 will be played from 14-17 November.
