After fear of COVID-19 took over the whole world, and the global sporting events being postponed. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) also decided to take preventive measures in order to avoid any mishaps. The cricket board allowed the foreign players to take their decision whether they want to continue their PSL stint or leave the tournament.
Taking into consideration the affected flight schedules, many of the foreign players decided to fly back to their country. This includes Dale Steyn, Colin Munro, Rilee Rossouw, Tom Banton, Carlos Brathwaite, Tom Banton, Alex Hales, and few other prominent names as well.
PSL 5 has been a huge success so far and the crowd turnover in the tournament up till now was remarkable. Seeing all this, the foreign players left with heavy hearts. These players admired the hospitality they received in the country and hoped that they will be back soon in Pakistan to take part in the next editions of Pakistan Super League. Rilee Rossouw, Colin Munro, Dale Steyn, Tom Banton, Carlos Brathwaite expressed their feelings on the social media.
