Update PSL 2021 set to resume in June

The 2021 edition of the Pakistan Super League is set to resume in early June, with all the matches set to take place in Karachi, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced on Thursday (March 11). The PCB has taken the decision in consultation with the franchises and the Governing Council.

With Pakistan set to play a series in South Africa in April, the June window is the only narrow opening available for the board as the men's national team will be leaving for the England tour soon thereafter. It is yet to be assessed, however, how many of the foreign players will be available during that window.

"June emerged as the most preferred and practical window due to Pakistan men's national cricket team's international commitments in March/April and late August/September," the PCB stated in a release on Thursday (March 11). "The remaining 20 matches in June are now being planned following the men's national cricket team's return from Zimbabwe on 13 May and before their departure for England on 26 June.

On March 4, the tournament was postponed due to rising COVID-19 positive cases among those involved with the tournament. Only 14 matches were played till that point, and the remaining 20 will be played in June - with the dates yet to be decided.
