The sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL 6) was postponed on March 4 after several players and support staff of different franchises were tested positive for coronavirus. However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has shared the proposed schedule for the remaining matches of PSL 2021.
As per the sources, PCB has shared numerous schedules for the remaining PSL 6 matches. One of those suggests a single match every day. Another schedule proposed to play solitary matches on weekdays and double-headers on weekends. The tentative date for the final is likely to be 20th June. The date could be changed as discussions are underway between PCB and PSL franchises.
The sources further revealed that the doubleheaders matches will be started at 4 and 9 pm. However, many franchisees do not agree on the timings of the second match, as it will end late at night, which will cause trouble for the players.
They also proposed that matches should be held at the prime timings for better television ratings.
One of the PSL 6 franchises also expressed concerns about playing repeatedly in the revised schedule.
Another suggestion about scheduling the matches during the end of May despite a clash with the Indian Premier League (IPL) was also floated.
The sources revealed that the board wants to end the league by June 20 so that they can have time to spend with families before the England tour that starts July 8.
Moreover, the quarantine period for the international players is likely to be between seven to ten days.
