PSL 2020 Semi-Final Postponed due to Coronavirus Threat in Pakistan

The Pakistan Super League was suspended by knockouts, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Tuesday.

Former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar agreed with the PCB, adding that the decision should have been made a week ago, because the matches that were held behind closed doors lost their charm.

“It was at this time of the hour that we had to do what the world was doing. The PCB was supposed to suspend the tournament a week ago, because without the crowd it would be uninteresting, ”said Akhtar.

Former cricketer Sikander Bakht suggested that an unfinished tournament could end before the start of next year.

He said that despite the unfinished tournament, PSL 2020 “has achieved its goal of showing the world that Pakistan is safe for major tournaments.”

PSL knockout matches were held today in Lahore, but the remaining matches, including Wednesday’s final, have now been rescheduled.

In the first semi-final, the Sultans of the Multan met with Peshawar Zalmi at 2 pm at the Gaddafi Stadium, and the kings of Karachi and Lahore Kalandars met each other in a night match.

The tournament finals have been rescheduled for tomorrow, after the PCB rescheduled the tournament for March 18 from March 22.

A day earlier, Pakistan and Bangladesh decided to postpone the next International Day and the tests in Karachi to a later date.
