After a three-month hiatus owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League, PSL 2021, is expected to start on June 1. With 20 games remaining, the tournament has been rescheduled.
Because the event has been completely relocated to the United Arab Emirates, the final is expected to take place on June 20. (UAE).
All 20 remaining games of the PSL 2021 will be played in Abu Dhabi, ensuring that there are no bio-security breaches like the one that occurred in Pakistan a few months ago, when players and staff tested positive for COVID-19, forcing the championship to be halted indefinitely.
