Pakistan Cricket Board hopes to stage remainder of the PSL fixtures in May.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to outsource the management of its biosecure bubble for the remaining games of the Pakistan Super League — whenever they are scheduled to be held.

A top-level meeting of PCB was held in Karachi on Friday — a day after the sixth edition of PSL was suspended following seven COVID-19 cases among players and officials inside the bubble. The meeting discussed various possibilities of when and how to hold the remaining PSL games.

“It has been decided that only one city will host the games and there are three windows under consideration,” said a source privy to matter.

Consultation on when to hold remaining matches of the PSL is underway between the PCB, franchise owners and stake holders as the completing the matches in the current year has become a challenge for the board.

According to sources, the franchise owners would suffer great loss if the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 event is not completed, due to which the owners have increased pressure on the board to complete the league.

The PCB CEO expressed confidence they would find time to complete the league, saying they were already looking at various options. “We will be looking at other windows and we hope to play the event at a later time,” Wasim Khan said.

“What s taking place right now is that we are carefully and slowly exiting, exiting players from our environment so that we can safely get them out and they can start to travel to wherever they need to travel in terms of moving forward. But we want to continue and finish the PSL.”
