According to the PCB, the NCOC and the cricket authorities will continue to work together and monitor the situation before a decision to increase crowd numbers for the three playoffs and the final is made.
“The NCOC made the decision following a detailed and comprehensive briefing by the PCB officials, in which they assured that the event organisers and the PCB will strictly follow government COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures, including social distancing,” said the PCB in a separate statement.
The PCB further added that it will soon announce its ticketing policy to provide further clarity to the fans on how they can purchase tickets and the process to enter/exit the venues during the matches.
The decision means around 7,500 ticketed spectators will be allowed access inside the National Stadium per match day, while around 5,500 will be able to attend each match day at the Gaddafi Stadium.
Fans will have to follow strict SOPs during their time at the stadium during PSL matches.
