According to the reports in The Nation, the remaining matches of the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League will take place in the UAE. Abu Dhabi is most likely to be the venue for the remainder of the fixtures in June. The COVID-19 positive cases within the bubble forced the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to call off the sixth season of the lucrative T20 league in March.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is aiming to wrap up the entire tournament by the 20th of June, with the national players not having any commitment until July. Pakistan, who recently completed a successful tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe, are on a two-month break. The men in green will visit England to play three ODIs and three T20Is in early July, followed by a Caribbean tour, comprising of five T20Is and two Tests.

A 7-member panel has visited the UAE, where they are in talks with Emirates Cricket Board to get the competition resumed soon. Though the permissions are yet to come, the organizers remain confident of receiving the consent to get the second phase of the tournament underway. PCB had to postpone PSL 6 after only 14 fixtures.

Karachi Kings topped the points table of PSL 6 until its postponement:

But Karachi had a superior net run rate. Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators occupied the last two spots, with the latter at the bottom with two points. The Gladiators had an inferior net run-rate to the Multan Sultans.
