Karachi Kings wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton is heading home to Jamaica after the fifth season of the HBL Pakistan Super League was postponed indefinitely.
While chatting with Sports Max, the wicketkeeper-batsman said that he has ‘mixed feelings’ about the isolation he will need to face upon his return to Jamaica.
However, the 34-year-old wasn’t worried about contracting the coronavirus in Pakistan as foreign cricketers had little or no interaction with the general public.
Karachi Kings wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton Said:
“Heading home is always a great feeling for me but this time there are
some mixed feelings because I think I will have to be in isolation for 14 days,” said Walton.
“From the start of the tournament due to the security protocol we had
limited contact with the wider society so as a result of that we had limited
contact with the virus,” he said.
“We have all been tested, the team and the Karachi Kings management,
and all results have come back negative,” he said.
Walton’s Karachi Kings teammate Alex Hales recently revealed that he has experienced symptoms of
COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and is yet to be tested.
However, Kings’ owner Salman Iqbal in an interview on Wednesday revealed that everybody,
including cricketers and support staff related to the franchise had tested negative for the aforementioned virus.
