The PCB has received all pending approvals and exemptions from the emirate to host the tournament there
The remainder of PSL 2021 is set to go ahead in Abu Dhabi in June, with the PCB receiving pending approvals and exemptions from the emirate to host the tournament there. The PSL management will now talk to the six franchises to rework logistics and firm up departure plans.
“We are delighted with this development as the remaining hurdles in the staging of the remaining HBL PSL 6 matches in Abu Dhabi have been overcome and all systems are now good to go,” Wasim Khan, the PCB chief executive, said in a statement. “We are grateful to the UAE government, National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority, Emirates Cricket Board and Abu Dhabi Sports Council for their support and patronage in ensuring all final obstacles were removed, which has firmly put us in a position to complete our marquee event.”
