“All-rounder Anwar Ali of the Quetta Gladiators tested positive for Covid-19. He is already being held in isolation in Karachi, according to Gladiators.
Shah had previously been released from isolation in Lahore after violating the protocols for leaving Pakistan by arriving at the designated hotel with a non-compliant RT-PCR test result.
Quetta will be unable to replace both of these players for the remaining matches due to a lack of time, as the team is scheduled to depart for Abu Dhabi tomorrow, and quarantine restrictions.
