PSL 6 postponed for indefinite period: sources


Lahore – Kanwal Khan:

The Pakistan Super League (PSL) management and the franchise owners have on Wednesday decided to further indefinitely delay the remaining matches of the sixth edition that were initially postponed earlier this year due to Covid incidence in the country after a few players had contracted the virus.

In its virtual session held earlier today (on Wednesday), the management and team owners have mutually agreed to heed operational difficulties obstructing the matches as Covid cases and related challenges have yet to be resolved before the league can run smoothly.

According to the sources, the virtual session, amongst Pakistan Cricket Board, PSL management and franchise owners, has come to a conclusion that for now the matches will be called off until the next decision.

Earlier it was reported that PCB finally got a green signal from the United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s government to stage the remaining PSL season 6 in Abu Dhabi in July.

According to the sources, the UAE government has allowed PCB to stage the remaining PSL 6 in Abu Dhabi. After the confirmation, PCB has raced their efforts to put things in place for the successful completion of the tournament.

The cricket board will release the revised schedule soon once they complete planning on a new budget, production, logistics, bio-secure bubble, and other things. Remember, a British company has already been hired to manage the bio-secure bubble.
