The six PSL franchises and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) met on 19th May via a virtual press conference to discuss the remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 6) in the United Arab Emirates (ECB). After getting a green signal yet awaited for some pending clarifications from the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), the mission of PCB-PSL is to plan the strategies and implementing them from 1st June.
The event was called off amidst the COVID-19 threats after the fourteen matches were down and dusted. The board had no option but to contact a foreign party to resume and wind up the season and did not get any preferable choice than UAE. The final of the PSL 6 is revised to be played on 20th June.
However, despite getting a ‘go’ from the hosts at their venues, a few queries are still pending that hangs the future of the T20 league. If they remained unanswered, the event might be canceled. The statement says,
“In today’s online discussion, we updated the team owners that the PCB had been advised that the PSL had received approvals from the relevant authorities in the UAE. However, some clarifications on certain exemption requests are still awaited, which are expected at some stage on Thursday.
“The team owners agreed that if we do not receive clarity by Thursday afternoon, then they’ll have no other option but to request postponement of the remaining 20 matches.
