PSL 6 Is ‘Ruined’ and Twitter Lays the Blame on Wahab, Sammy & Javed Afridi [Tweets]

Do you find yourself agreeing with the Twitteratis here?

As several players and other showrunners of Pakistan Super League (PSL) contract the coronavirus, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to postpone PSL 6 with immediate effect. And Twitter already knows who to blame for this.

With seven COVID-19 cases being reported amid the sporting competition, PCB had no choice but to suspend PSL 2021 to ensure the safety and medical well-being of people. In a statement PCB said;

“The health and wellbeing of all participants are paramount, … The decision to suspend the HBL Pakistan Super League 6 with immediate effect was made following a meeting with the team owners.”

PSL 6 kicked off on 20th February, and just two weeks later the sporting event is facing a damper.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Lahore Qalandars, Atif Rana blames PCB’s mismanagement for the outbreak making its way to PSL 6. According to Parhlo, Atif Rana says the franchises were skeptical of PSL’s staging from the start but the board still went ahead. He even doubted if the event could resume at a later date.

Previously PCB had said that there was no other window available in a jam-packed cricket calendar. Whether PCB is solely to blame or not they’re trying to make amends by arranging repeat PCR tests, vaccines, and isolation facilities for the six participating teams.

The PCB is currently focused on ‘the safe and secure passage of all participants in the tournament‘.


Blame it On…..?

Whether PCB is solely to blame or not, Twitter lays the blame on someone else entirely. Three people to be exact. Javed Afridi, Wahab Riaz, and Darren Sammy.

The PCB admitted that it allowed Wahab Riaz and Darren Sammy to reintegrate with the Peshawar Zalmi team without completing the three-day quarantine period. (you see why PCB is being blamed)

So why are the players being blamed? They were the ones that violated safety protocols when they met franchise owner Javed Afridi outside the team’s bio-security bubble. This is why Twitter also blames Javed Afridi.


Did Wahab Riaz Use Harsh Words Towards Fans During a Match?

Following a COVID-19 protocol breach, Wahab Riaz and Darren Sammy were placed in quarantine. A period they didn’t complete in isolation, returning to the team in less than three days.


Who Does Twitter Blame For Ruining PSL 6

Journalist Dennis Pollard believes negligence on all parts is what ‘endorsed the insignificance of the rules‘.


Later three players from other teams tested positive for Coronavirus. Now PSL 6 is ‘ruined’ as per Twitter and they blame three people in particular. The CEO of Peshawar Zalmi is being blamed for bulldozing safety protocols to get Darren Sammy and Wahab Riaz back on the field.


That’s just what happens when you try to muscle your way through things. Can’t go in guns blazing outside the set of a Western flick. Not cool Javed bhai.

Others assert you can’t lay the blame on these three people alone. We didn’t many brand ambassadors religious donning mask the way people should in an ongoing pandemic that has plagued the world and global economy.



What do you think? Who do you think should be held accountable for the postponement of PSL6?
