Lahore to host remaining PSL matches before June: reports
Out of six franchises of Pakistan Super League, five franchises agreed that Lahore would host the remaining 20 matches of the tournament which was postponed after seven players tested positive for coronavirus, according to media reports.
Pakistan Cricket Board’s Chairman Ehsan Mani chaired a virtual meeting between franchise owners and PCB officials. In the meeting, the owners shared their concerns and grievances.
However, the majority now has a consensus on Lahore as a venue for the next matches. “The city has been chosen as the venue for the remainder of the fixtures of PSL,” said a PCB official as quoted by The News.
During the meeting, Mani assured that there would be nothing to complain in future.
Earlier, Lahore was originally scheduled to host 14 of the 34 matches from March 10 onwards, which included the playoff matches and final of the competition.
Meanwhile the decision regarding the in-person attendance has not been taken right now.
According to media reports, the final decision will be taken in the next meeting which is going to be held in the coming days.
However, the sixth edition of PSL is expected to be finished by June as the national cricket team is going to tour England and West Indies from July onwards.
