PSL: Final of 24th June and other updates

Article Top Banner 1

The ongoing Habib Bank Limited (HBL) Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 6 is likely to face further delays.

That’s because of issues raised by the department of health of Abu Dhabi against Indian broadcasters, who were supposed to cover the event.

The problem is that the number of days spent in isolation by the Indian broadcasters are less than the mandated requirement.  

An important meeting between PCB officials and PSL franchises will also take place today to resolve the issue.

If the required permission is granted to the 16-member crew, then the event can start from June 7. 

The PCB has also decided to hold the final of the HBL PSL season six on June 24, instead of June 20.

Team news

Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars will begin their training at the Shaikh Zayed Cricket Stadium on Wednesday night.

All players will complete their quarantine periods by Wednesday afternoon.

Meanwhile the players are gearing up for the much-anticipated event with well-timed tweets.

Visa status

Six cricketers from a total of 13, currently in Pakistan, have been issued visas for travelling to Abu Dhabi, for the remaining HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches. 

Cricketers who have been granted the visas include Sarfaraz Ahmed, Zeeshan Ashraf and Zaid Alam.

Seven cricketers in Pakistan have still not been granted visas.

These include players such as Amir Yamin, Asif Afridi and Mohammad Imran.
