KARACHI: The 6th PSL postponed due to a rise in COVID-19 cases amongst the teams and the organisers of the tournament, as reported by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday.
As per the official statement issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board, a formal meeting was held where it was decided that the health and wellbeing of all the people involved in the success of the tournament is of priority. In light of the rise in the cases being reported, the board decided to postpone the Pakistan Super League 6 with immediate effect.
