The remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) sixth season will be held in Abu Dhabi. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) declared on the microblogging website Twitter that it had secured clearance from the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). However, the PCB has yet to reveal the dates and other aspects of the matches.
According to a statement released in this respect, the PCB will hold an online conference with all franchise owners, during which the plans for the event will be finalized. Waseem Khan, the Chief Executive Officer of the Pakistan Cricket Board, said that all barriers to conducting the event in Abu Dhabi have been lifted. He expressed gratitude to the UAE administration, the UAE Cricket Board, and the Abu Dhabi Sports Council, as well as the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority.
Wasim Khan stated that all franchise owners would be contacted in order to finalize the specifics of the event's organization and that the details would be published shortly. Season 6 of the Pakistan Super League kicked off on February 20 in Karachi, with matches taking place in both Karachi and Lahore this time. After arriving, it was decided to postpone. However, in April, the PCB agreed to re-host the event in Karachi from June 1 after consulting all stakeholders, and preparations to hold matches in Lahore were canceled due to the threat of the coronavirus.
For the remaining matches of the event in June, a special draught was held in which franchises without foreign players choose their substitutes, but notable players were unable to participate due to international commitments. Following that, both of the franchises asked the PCB to move the league to Muttahida, which was accepted, and Pakistan invited the UAE Cricket Board to host the matches due to the seriousness and previous encounters of the third wave of Coronavirus in Pakistan.
