WEB DESK: Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is expected to fly to Abu Dhabi on Monday (tonight) after the former national team captain was turned away by immigration officials over clearance issues a day earlier.
According to sources, the former national team skipper was previously travelling on his residence visa, which is not valid anymore. However, he will now be travelling to Abu Dhabi on his visit visa.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had initiated proceedings for Sarfaraz’s visit visa. The former captain has now been issued a visit visa for travelling to Abu Dhabi.
Earlier, the former Pakistan skipper was scheduled to leave for Abu Dhabi via a commercial flight at 4:00am on Sunday.
Five people, including fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain, left Karachi for Abu Dhabi on Sunday. However, Sarfaraz and 10 other persons from Lahore could not get clearance for the trip to Abu Dhabi.
It may be recalled that 34 matches were to be played in PS6 and the first 14 matches have been played in Pakistan. The event was postponed after corona cases surfaced among the players participating in the event.
Now, the remaining 20 matches, including the final will be played in Abu Dhabi.
