The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is on its way to approaching the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) for organizing the remainder of the PSL 6 matches.
As the T20 league was coiled up after its fourteenth match, the board has been looking to resume the event by 1st June at the National Stadium, Karachi. With no allowance from COVID-19 end’s, the board has no option but to drag the event out of Pakistan amidst the critical health scenarios.
The six franchises and the authorities of the board met today in a virtual press conference where UAE has been preferred as the venue to revamp the PSL 6.
The PCB will be soon working with the ECB to check the available window and if the event can be organized successfully there. Notably, a revised schedule might be issued as there are no clear stances if UAE will be giving a green signal to commence the matches by 1st June.
PSL 6 to move out of Pakistan
The Chief Executive of the PCB said,
“We had an interactive and productive meeting in which we considered a number of factors. While the UAE has emerged as a preferred venue, a number of challenges remain, which will be worked through over the coming days. We remain committed to doing everything possible to complete the HBL PSL 6.”
After the resumption, the first match, officially the fifteenth of the event, is set to take place between the three times HBL PSL champions Islamabad United and the runner-up of PSL 5, Lahore Qalandars.
