Players and player support personnel, who have completed the mandatory seven-day room isolation and returned three negative tests, are allowed to integrate with their sides and participate in training sessions.
“The hosting of the HBL Pakistan Super League 6 is a great promotional boost for Abu Dhabi and its exceptional sporting facilities and expertise. Our long and excellent relationship with the Pakistan Cricket Board and Ehsan Mani led to this development, which has won our government’s support with all the necessary exemptions and approvals,” Aref Al Awani, General Secretary, Abu Dhabi Sports Council, said.
“On behalf of everyone at Abu Dhabi Cricket and Abu Dhabi Sports Council, let me welcome all competitors and wish them the very best of luck. I know their cricketing skills will entertain fans here and around the globe and help progress the sport in the UAE by attracting new and younger audiences.”
