PCB makes important statement over PSL 6 after Indian Media Reports
LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) makes important statement over PSL 6 after Indian Media Reports.
PCB has made it clear that they will not postpone the sixth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) to make space for Asia Cup next year.
A Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official had suggested the aforementioned idea to the PCB as the September or October window this year for Asia Cup doesn’t suit the Indian board.
“Asia Cup will be a struggle this year. Going by the statement of the Chief Executive of the PCB, the window that suits them doesn’t suit India. Maybe they can postpone PSL next year if BCCI is able to open up a window during that period.
Otherwise conducting the Asia Cup doesn’t seem too practical as these are challenging times,” BCCI official said while speaking to Indo-Asian News Service (IANS).
According to sources in the PCB, the board is hopeful of staging the Asia Cup this year at a neutral venue and are not even considering the option presented by a BCCI official through Indian media.
The PSL takes place every year in the February-March window and this year’s edition was suspended just before the playoffs due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The PCB is keen to stage the knockout matches of PSL 5 in November.
