Pakistan’s left-arm spinner Raza Hasan was on Monday expelled from the remainder of the country’s domestic season for breaching COVID-19 protocols. He was a part of the Northern’s Second XI in the Quaid-e-Azam trophy.
“It is sad and unfortunate that despite several reminders and educational programmes on the significance and importance of respecting and following Covid-19 protocols, Raza Hasan decided to take matters in his hand and overstepped the line,” Nadeem Khan, the PCB’s High Performance Director said in a press release.
“As such, he has been expelled from the tournament and will not be allowed for the remaining season.”
“The PCB has a zero-tolerance approach towards Covid-19 breaches as these are designed to not only ensure health and safety of all participants but to also demonstrate to the world that we can successfully organise and deliver domestic competitions,” Khan said.
