PSL 2020 Postponed Due to Coronavirus

The Pakistan Super League joins the long list of postponed cricket events amid the widespread transmission of coronavirus throughout the world.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to call off the ongoing season of the PSL to prevent a possible contagion of COVID-19. As it may be recalled, the PSL has been played behind closed doors these past few games. 

As the number of COVID-19 cases in Pakistan jumped to 184, the board made their final decision of postponing the entirety of the tournament. Despite the near end of the season, the PCB deemed it best to not push through with the pending matches. 

Aside from the increasing number of cases, some foreign players had also decided to return to their home countries in fear of being away from their families in times like this. Among those who went home is one foreign player who had shown symptoms of COVID-19. 

The remaining part of the PSL has the two semi-final matches and the final match in pending status. One is between the Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi while the other is between the Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars. Whoever wins in those matches will be the winner of the season. 

The new schedule for PSL’s conclusion is yet to be announced as the PCB is still carefully handling the COVID-19 situation for everyone’s safety. To know more about the Pakistan  Super League, visit Betwala.
