The postponed Pakistan Super League (PSL) 6 will be played in Abu Dhabi in June, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed last month. The PCB has received the green signal to hold the remainder of 20 PSL matches in Abu Dhabi following approvals and exemptions from the United Arab Emirates government.

Earlier, PSL 6 was postponed amid multiple cases of COVID-19 within teams inside the bio-secure bubble. There were multiple reports of bio-bubble breaches by players and administrators during the tournament.

While there were talks to conduct the remainder of PSL 6 in Karachi, it couldn’t materialise due to the prevalent situation surrounding the dreaded virus in the country.
