The remaining matches of the sixth season of Pakistan Super League (PSL) will be played in Abu Dhabi.

A statement from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on the micro-blocking website Twitter announced that the board had received approval from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government.

However, the date and other details of the matches have not been announced by the PCB yet.

A statement issued in this regard said that an online meeting would be held between the PCB and all the franchise owners after which the arrangements for holding the event would be finalized.

In this regard, Pakistan Cricket Board Chief Executive Officer Waseem Khan said that all the obstacles in holding the event in Abu Dhabi have been removed.

He thanked the UAE government, the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, the UAE Cricket Board and the Abu Dhabi Sports Council.

Wasim Khan said that all the franchise owners would be consulted to finalize the matters related to the organization of the event and also hinted that the details would be released soon.

It may be recalled that Pakistan Super League season 6 started from Karachi on February 20 and the matches of the event were to be played in two cities of the country Karachi and Lahore this time. However, on March 4, Pakistan Super League faced 7 players and others in Corona cases. It was decided to postpone after coming.

However, in April, the PCB, in consultation with all stakeholders, had decided to re-host the event in Karachi from June 1, and plans to hold matches in Lahore were canceled due to the threat of corona virus.

A separate draft was also drawn up for the remaining matches of the event in June, in which franchises deprived of foreign players opted for their replacements but the famous players could not be available for the league due to international engagements.

Subsequently, in view of the severity and previous experiences of the third wave of Corona virus in Pakistan, all the franchises requested the PCB to relocate the league to Muttahida, which was approved and Pakistan approached the UAE Cricket Board for hosting the matches.
