The United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s government has given a green signal to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to stage the remaining Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 6 in Abu Dhabi.
According to reports, UAE has accepted PCB’s request to stage the remaining PSL 6 in Abu Dhabi after their own government refused to host the event in Karachi due to the current COVID-19 surge across the country.
PCB is yet to make any official announcement but reports claimed that PCB has started working on a revised schedule which will be released soon. The cricket board will also present a revised budget to all franchises as the league has now been shifted to a foreign venue.
A British company has already been hired to manage the bio-secure bubble which will be put in place 10 days before the event. Players, supporting staff, and officials will undergo the first COVID-19 testing this Thursday.
Remember, PSL 6 was postponed after just 14 matches to the COVID-19 outbreak in the bio-secure bubble in Karachi. As many as six players and a supporting staff member were tested positive.
