PSL Organizers Are Risking Lives Of Several Individuals For Their Financial Gains: Javed Miandad
Former Pakistani batsman Javed Miandad has slammed the organizers of the Pakistan Super League(PSL) for planning to resume the season amid the Pandemic.
"This is not the time to play cricket, it is the time to save lives," Miandad was quoted as saying by CricketPakistan.com.pk.
"In these times of crisis, we should be more focused on saving lives rather than playing cricket," he added.
The 63-year-old gave the example of the Indian Premier League(IPL) being postponed due to the rise in Covid-19 cases.
"The whole world has been affected by the coronavirus. India, where the world cup was supposed to take place, is also severely affected by the pandemic," he said.
Miandad accused that PSL organizers that they are risking lives for financial gains.
"They are risking the lives of several individuals for their own financial gains. If it was in my hands, I would not take the big risk of organizing the remaining PSL matches. If they hold this event and face problems, then who will be responsible?" Miandad said.
PSL got suspended in March due to a rise in Covid cases in Pakistan which also reached inside the bubble with several players contracting the virus.
