Gaddafi Stadium’s fortunes are bright, while Lahore has become a strong candidate to host the remaining PSL 6 matches.
PSL 6 has been postponed due to increasing Corona cases, PCB officials and franchises discussed the proposed windows in a virtual meeting on Monday to complete the event, one this month, the second in June, and the third in September. A final decision is expected this week.
According to the report, Lahore has emerged as a strong candidate for hosting the remaining matches. Rejecting the proposal to hold matches in Karachi, 5 out of 6 franchises supported the festival at Gaddafi Stadium.
If the event is not completed, there will be a loss of 15 million in terms of commercial contracts, remembering that 70% of the players have already been paid. On the other hand, it has also come to light that in view of the Coronavirus, the franchisees had written a letter to the board on December 25 last year advising them to move to PSL UAE.
Board officials said there were no dangers in hosting the event in Pakistan, no untoward incidents occurred during the hosting of Zimbabwe and South Africa, and shifting league matches abroad would also affect the return of international cricket.
