LAHORE: The matter is seemingly coming in the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) control as most of the participants of the HBL PSL 2021 have been issued the UAE visas.

According to the PCB the 25 persons set to travel to the Abu Dhabi from India have been issued UAE visas. All the players belonging to South Africa and support staff have been issued visas. Out of 27 people travelling from South Africa to Abu Dhabi 26 have been issued visas.

Herschelle Gibbs, Faf du Plessis, Rilee Rossouw, David Miller, Cameron Delport and Michael Smith have been issued UAE visas. Pakistan’s all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz has also been issued visa and he will now travel from South Africa to Abu Dhabi through chartered flight along with others.

“Most of the people moving from Pakistan to Abu Dhabi through two chartered flights have been issued visas. The first day of isolation will be counted provided the participants are able to ensure check-in in the Abu Dhabi hotel before 2 pm on Thursday,” the Board informed.

The PCB late on Tuesday had to delay the departure of the six teams for one day because of the visa issues.
