LAHORE (92 News) - The Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 six franchises have demanded form the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to organise the remaining matches of the event in the UAE.

It is pertinent to mention here that the PSL matches have been postponed due to increasing cases of coronavirus in Pakistan.

According to the letter top PCB, all the franchises said that the Corona situation of UAE is better than in Pakistan. They have formally requested the PCB to transfer the remaining matches to the Gulf state.

The board has also approached the National Command Operations Center (NCOC) officials in response to the franchisee's demand. The PCB will take the final decision after consulting the NCOC and the government.

"The PCB is following the instructions of the NCOC regarding the conduct of the remaining matches, So far, the NCOC has not issued any instructions not to hold matches in Karachi," it mentioned.

It may be recalled that PSL 2021 started on February 20 in Karachi and the matches of the event were scheduled this time in two cities of the country, Karachi and Lahore.

The cash-rich T20 competition was postponed indefinitely in March earlier this year after seven players and staff members tested positive for Covid-19. Later, the PCB announced after consulting with the franchises as well as the NCOC—the country’s leading body in the fight against coronavirus—to organise the remaining matches of the sixth edition of Pakistan’s premier T20 competition from June 1 to June 20 in Karachi.
