The remaining Pakistan Super League (PSL) season five matches which were postponed indefinitely, due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, are likely to take place in the second or third week of November this year.

According to details, the playoffs stage of the PSL 5 could not take place due to the pandemic but the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is now hopeful, due to the recent reduction in coronavirus cases in the country, that the remaining matches can be held in a bio-secure environment, with Karachi likely to be the venue.

The matches are likely to take place between November 12 and 18, which falls in between the window for Zimbabwe’s tour of Pakistan and the T10 League in the UAE.

The availability of foreign players still remains a concern but PCB is optimistic about players from other Asian countries taking part.

Limited number of fans will also be allowed inside the stadium, after permission from the government, if the situation further improves.

The management also needs to address its differences with broadcasters and PSL franchises, before the event, but PCB are hopeful that they will be resolved soon.
