Karachi likely to host remaining PSL 5 without crowd in November


The Knock-out stage of Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 5 is likely to be held in Karachi in a bio-secure environment between November 12 and 18.

Daily Express reported that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has shown confidence in completing its premium cricket league following the decline in number of COVID-19 cases in the country.
