The remaining Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 are likely to take place in the second or third week of November this year. Earlier this year, the tournament was postponed indefinitely in the light of the coronavirus outbreak. The tournament was postponed just before the playoffs stage.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) are now hopeful that they can complete the PSL in November due to reduction in coronavirus cases in the country. As expected, all the remaining games are expected to be held in a bio-secure environment, with Karachi likely to be the venue.
The PSL matches are likely to take place between November 12 and 18, which falls in between the window for Zimbabwe’s tour of Pakistan and T10 League. The availability of foreign players still remains a concern but PCB is optimistic about roping in players from other Asian countries, at least, according to Cricket Pakistan.
The report also stated that limited number of fans will also be allowed inside the stadium, after permission from the government, if the situation further improves. International cricket finally resumed in July when England hosted West Indies for a three-match Test series.
The three Lions then locked horns against Ireland in an ODI series while also playing a three-match Test series against Pakistan. England and Pakistan are currently involved in a three-match T20I series. Following this, there will be T20I and ODI series between England and Australia before the IPL takes place. In the Caribbeans, the CPL is also going on at the moment.
But while cricket is slowly getting back on track, the fans are nowhere close to being allowed to enter the stadiums. All the games are being played in empty stadiums.
