Remaining PSL Matches to be Held in Closed National Stadium

Despite the Coronavirus outbreak, the remaining Pakistan Super League matches will push through even without an audience at the National Cricket Stadium.

For the first time in PSL history, all the six matches including a playoff tie will be held in Karachi. In line with the event, the PSL will push through without a spectating audience to prevent the possible contagion of COVID-19. 

The prohibition for the audiences does not apply to the accredited commercial partners, media, and other service providers who will all be needed to help for the broadcast of the event. Also, the immediate families of the competing players, player support personnel, and the franchise owners will be allowed inside the stadium. 

The decision was made to protect the health of spectators, players, officials, and the media people. Aside from that, they stated that all unused tickets will be refunded through their ticketing policy. 

The announcement of the Sindh government concerning the closed-door games in Karachi had been well coordinated with the Pakistan Cricket Board. This serves as a safety measure against the spread of the virus since most of Pakistan’s 21 COVID-19 cases are in Sindh. 

The remaining matches and play-offs in the PSL will take place at the National Cricket League in Karachi until March 18. To know more about the PSL, check out Betwala.
