The UAE is the preferred venue for the remaining 20 matches of the Pakistan Super League

On Thursday the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) released the fixtures paving the way for the tournament to resume after it was suspended in Pakistan in March following a few positive cases of COVID-19 in the teams. There will be five doubleheaders to complete the tournament within a 15-day window.

All six franchise owners, meanwhile, have pulled their weight behind the PSL and the Pakistan Cricket Board who fought off on a number of challenges to put the event together.

The UAE has emerged as a preferred venue for the remaining 20 matches, PCB had said in a statement on May 7, adding that as the holiday period had already started in both the countries and the Pakistan men’s national cricket team had to travel to the United Kingdom on 23 June, the “PCB will use this time to work with the Emirates Cricket Board to check if the event can be successfully delivered within the available time.”
