Former skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed was among 11 players and officials who were on Sunday denied clearance to board commercial flights to Abu Dhabi which will host the remaining games of the Pakistan Super League next month.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has been facing logistical issues, including getting visas and permissions to land charter flights from Mumbai and Johannesburg, ahead of the PSL which will resume in Abu Dhabi following a postponement in March this year.

“As many as 11 players and officials on their way to the PSL, including the Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, were not allowed to board commercial flights going from Lahore and Karachi to Abu Dhabi via Doha early morning on



Sunday,” ESPNcricinfo reported.

“Five persons from this PSL contingent were cleared to fly, while the others had to return to their hotels where they have been in quarantine since May 24.”

According to the report, “…a batch of more than 25 individuals from both cities was supposed to travel to the UAE on a chartered plane.

“But the PCB, in a late decision, instead opted to put them on commercial flights, which nullified the quarantine protocols already in place.”

On Thursday, two charter flights carrying around 250 players, officials, PCB employees and official broadcasters and their staff landed in Abu Dhabi from Karachi and Lahore.
