Ali said that PCB should have learned how to handle the bio-secure bubble on the national team’s tour of New Zealand. He said that the players also breached the bio-secure bubble in New Zealand, and the New Zealand government threatened to send the team back. He said strict measures had to be implemented to run the whole tournament smoothly.

He said that Mani and Khan should have known better as they are residents of England, and if they go back to London even they will have to quarantine for 14 days, so why were the players allowed to integrate into the bubble after only two days.
