Pakistan Cricket Board reveals tentative schedule for the remaining matches of the PSL 2020
Karachi, March 22: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is planning to hold the remaining matches of the PSL-5 in November, if the situation arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic improves in the next few months, its CEO Wasim Khan said on Sunday.
The PSL was suspended on Tuesday before the semifinals after the PCB revealed that a foreign player showed symptoms of the dreaded COVID-19, but Khan said the remaining matches may be held during the 10-day window available in November.
"But we have to first sit down and discuss the situation with all the franchise owners because they are also suggestions that Multan Sultans which topped the points table should be declared winners or to have these remaining matches before the PSL-6 early next year," he told the media in a teleconference.
Khan said the Board is in good financial health that it will not face any crisis for a year even if the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
"The Coronavirus pandemic has affected the entire world and sports globally. In this crisis time at present we have money and are not facing any financial crisis," he said.
