Breath of Relaxation
This announcement is proved as a breath of relaxation for all the stakeholders of PSL. Fans of PSL were eagerly waiting to see the schedule of PSL 6. For almost the last ten days, the remainder part of PSL 6 was in a state of shakiness and there was a question mark in its resumption. The announcement has made the day for all its stakeholders, including fans.
Hurdles in PSL 6
The PCB moved PSL 6 out of the country due to the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases. The NCOC denied permission to restart the tournament in the country. So the PCB planned to move PSL from Karachi to Abu Dhabi.
But the problems didn’t end just by moving PSL to UAE. PCB faced visa delay issues, permission to land chartered flights, and quarantine protocols. Earlier, PCB was to start PSL on June 5, then on June 7. Later, after a lot of suspense June 9 is a confirmed date to resume the PSL 6.
