PSL 6 In Dubai

This uncertainty can be gauged from the fact that the players and officials belonging to the participating teams in the league were checked in hotels in Karachi and Lahore on Thursday morning for a three-day quarantine after receiving a negative report of the code test. They were supposed to be, but they were prevented from doing so.

Most notably, many of the foreign cricketers who had to come to Pakistan to join the chartered flights had arrived at or were about to arrive at their respective airports when they were informed that they would not be leaving for Pakistan yet. It should be noted that the teams participating in the league have to leave for Abu Dhabi on May 22 on two chartered flights.

Indian and South African broadcasting staff allowed to enter Abu Dhabi

The Indian and South African staff members of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the broadcaster through which it wants to decorate the PSL festival, have now become another obstacle in the way of the event.

This is because due to the current situation in the code, ordinary passengers from India and South Africa are not allowed to enter the UAE and the Pakistan Cricket Board wants the crew of the broadcasting company covering the Pakistan Super League Indians and South Africans should be exempted from this ban.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has asked the Abu Dhabi government that just like the players and coaching staff participating in the league will reach Abu Dhabi from Lahore and Karachi via chartered flights, so too will the two coverage broadcasters be chartered from South Africa and India Will reach Abu Dhabi by flights.

The Pakistan Cricket Board does not want South African and Indian crew staff to be barred from entering Abu Dhabi and face embarrassment, so it has sought a written assurance from the Abu Dhabi government.

When will this league be?

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wanted to hold the event in Karachi from June 1 to 20 after it was postponed in March, as the Pakistani team has to tour England immediately after that. It will not be easy for him to reschedule it as his international calendar is busy this year.

In that case, the league would be possible in September. In September, the Pakistani team has to play a limited-overs series against Afghanistan.

Why was Abu Dhabi chosen?

Pakistan Super League 6 started in Karachi on February 20 but had to be postponed on March 4 when the code tests of some players of the participating teams came back positive. By that time, 14 matches of the league had been played.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had decided to hold the remaining PSL matches in Karachi in June after liaising with the owners of six franchise teams, but in view of the overall poor condition of the code in the country, the government decided to hold Pakistan Cricket. The board was not allowed to hold the league here after which the only way left for the Pakistan Cricket Board was to take the event to the United Arab Emirates.
