The global pandemic of Coronavirus apart from halting all the major sporting events across the World also brought Pakistan Super League to a grinding halt with only few matches to be played.

When the tournament was stopped, only playoff matches were to be played for the tournament that was major success as it was held first time ever in Pakistan since its inception.

Now the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) CEO Wasim Khan has said that the board is looking to organise the remaining four matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 in November.

“We have identified a window in November to complete our remaining matches but that’s subject to the pandemic. Zimbabwe is also schedule to visit Pakistan in November to play three T20Is and three ODIs,” Wasin was quoted as saying by Geo Super.

Speaking about the growth of the league he revealed that over 500,000 spectators visited stadiums in 26 games this year and figures would have increased in the last few matches had they not been postponed.

“Since the league has moved to Pakistan it has become a big thing. It was a big challenge to have the entire PSL in Pakistan as we didn’t have any infrastructure but the PCB staff did a great job,” he said.

While disclosing plans to add Peshawar as another PSL venue Wasim said that the PCB is aiming to take cricket as far and wide as possible.

“The PSL is lifeblood for Pakistan and it was good thing to have all the games in the country,” he said.
