All six Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises have written a letter to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) expressing concerns over hosting the remaining PSL 6 in the country amid prevailing COVID-19.
According to the reports, franchises in their letter suggested PCB to shift the remaining PSL 6 to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the situation is much controlled there.
Meanwhile, PCB is likely to look into this option but currently, they are in touch with National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) to monitor the situation.
“PCB is monitoring the situation alongside NCOC. There is no confirmation as of yet,” a PCB official said in a statement.
Earlier today, the Indian Premier League (IPL) also got postponed due to the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases in the country. India is currently having the most number of COVID-19 active cases in the world.
It is pertinent to mention here that the remaining PSL 6 is scheduled to start from June 1 in Karachi with a mandatory seven-day quarantine from May 22 at a local hotel. The final of the event is penciled in for June 22.
But, Pakistan has recorded a rise in COVID-19 cases and deaths due to the virus in the last couple of weeks. The country is partially locked down and can move towards a complete lockdown if the situation gets out of control.
