Alex Hales goes into self-isolation after coming home from the Pakistan Super League after he showed some symptoms of the COVID-19.
The PSL provided an option for its international players to go back home at the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak. Among those who decided to go home is English batsman Alex Hales. After some players had gone home, the PSL pushed through but was later on postponed due to some precautionary measures after Hales had called the organizers.
Hales called up the organizers stating that he had developed some symptoms. In line with such, Alex had denied all speculations that he had tested positive of COVID-19.
The 31-year-old gave out a statement in which he fully explained the situation he was in. In that statement, he said that he left the PSL feeling perfectly fit, healthy, and with no symptoms of the virus. However, he developed a fever on Sunday which was followed upon by dry and persistent cough. He then decided to follow the government’s advise and placed himself in self-quarantine and that he is yet to be tested.
Hales also confirmed his self-isolation situation via twitter in which he asked his followers for some tv series that he could watch. However, he later deleted that tweet.
Following Hales’ self-isolation, Surrey’s Tom Curran and Jade Dernbach had also been advised to self-isolate for 14 days as they had spent time with Hales in Curran’s recent 25th birthday. Sources say that Curran and Dernbach are not included in the list of the six Surrey players who had also been placed in isolation.
Alex Hales recently played for the Karachi Kings in the recent Pakistan Super League. To learn more about the PSL as well as its other franchise teams, check out Betwala.
