ON THURSDAY, the PCB confirmed that the remainder of the 2021 edition of the Pakistan Super League will resume on June 9 at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
The 30 matches of the group stage will be followed by the playoffs. There will also be six doubleheaders, which will include the June 21 games – Qualifier and Eliminator 1.
“We have continued to take decisive actions in the face of ongoing pressures and major challenges outside of our control over the last 10 days,” Pakistan Cricket Board chief executive Wasim Khan said.
“Our priority was always to deliver the complete tournament in Pakistan. However, due to extenuating circumstances, we had to shift from that thinking for the remaining matches.”
The PSL final is due to take place on June 24 and the Pakistan national team is scheduled to fly to England the next day for three one-day internationals and three T20s.
The PCB has flown players and team officials of six franchises by chartered flights though some players, including Quetta Gladiators’ Sarfaraz Ahmed, went to Abu Dhabi on commercial flights. Sarfaraz was first not allowed to board a commercial flight from Karachi before another flight.
