“Since its inception in 2016, the PSL has embraced and overcome numerous challenges, only to emerge as a stronger and competitive league year-on-year,” said Pakistan Cricket Board chief executive officer Wasim Khan.

“The enhancement and credibility of the PSL brand remains critical to the PCB and I am pleased that we have continued to take decisive actions in the face of ongoing pressures and major challenges outside of our control over the last 10 days.

“Everyone has worked tirelessly to find solutions and a way forward, and I am delighted that we are now in a position to announce the complete schedule.

“There was a consensus between the PCB and the franchises that it was imperative to complete the remaining matches in 2021 so that we have a clean 2022 for PSL seven.

“Now, after overcoming all obstacles through due diligence and careful planning, I believe we have collectively achieved the desired objective that was set in March following the postponement.

Abu Dhabi Hosted IPL 2020 Matches

The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi hosted several matches during the 2020 Indian Premier League. It is being considered for the resumption of the 2021 IPL, too.

“I can assure all the fans that our priority was always to deliver the complete tournament in Pakistan. However, due to extenuating circumstances, we had to shift from that thinking for the remaining matches,” added Khan.

The Karachi Kings are the reigning champions and are currently at the top of the PSL 2021 standings.
