Abu Dhabi, June 24 (MNN) Peshawar Zalmi duo of Haider Ali and Umaid Asif have been suspended from Thursday’s HBL Pakistan Super League 6 final against Multan Sultans after they admitted to charges of violating health and safety protocols.

Haider has since been withdrawn from England and West Indies tours.

National Selectors Chair Muhammad Wasim, in consultation with Captain Babar Azam and Head Coach Misbah-ul-Haq has named Sohaib Maqsood as Haider’s replacement for the two tours during which Pakistan men’s national cricket team will play three ODIs and eight T20Is, apart from two Tests in Jamaica.

Decision on their suspension from the tournament was made early Thursday morning by the tournament’s Covid-19 management panel after the protocol violation happened on Wednesday.

The two cricketers were found not to have interacted with any other squad members at any time after the incident and have been placed in room isolation.

Sohaib has had a stellar HBL Pakistan Super League 6, in which he has to date scored 363 runs in 11 matches with an average of 40.33 and strike-rate of just under 153.

Sohaib has represented Pakistan in 26 ODIs and 20 T20Is, with his last T20I appearance being against New Zealand in Hamilton in January 2016.
