In a generous move, the PCB has allocated its Karachi training building to the paramedics who treat patients inflicted with COVID-19. The board’s high-performance facility is now occupied by a medical team from the Expo Centre, thus acting as a make-shift hospital. Unsung heroes from the healthcare industry received this space, as a token of appreciation from the PCB. With state-of-the-art facilities, the Hanif Mohammad High-Performance Center will temporarily lodge the medical staff, so that they are effectively and efficiently, able to treat COVID-19 patients.
CPL as usual
The recent corona virus pandemic has thrown all cricketing tournaments, off-gear. While this may be the case with the rest of the world, the CPL or Caribbean Premier League is all set to take place in August and September. The organizers are constantly in touch with Cricket West Indies and other medical advisors to assess the current situation about the game, worldwide. They also felt that canceling an event that is still 6 months away, may not be a practical decision.
The ICC, in its safety move, is now convening remotely to do their business. This is in consideration of the staff’s, players’ and officials’ family health as well. On Friday, Shashank Manohar and Manu Sawhney will be video conferencing each other to discuss urgent matters of the board.
