The Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to postpone the 6th edition of the PSL after rising cases of the coronavirus in the bio secure bubble. Though the official announcement from Pakistan officials is pending, Abdul Ghaffar, a prominent sports journalist in Pakistan has confirmed the news. 


“Heart Breaking News: PSL 6 postponed,” he tweeted

Earlier, there were reports of the PCB giving covid-19 vaccines to its players but now it's being reported that the board has decided to postpone the cricketing extravaganza.

"The vaccine doses will be administered on Thursday and will be offered to all those inside the bio-secure bubble. However, it will solely be the players and officials' decision if they want to get the vaccine shots,” a release from the PCB read.

It must be noted that Islamabad united’s Fawad Ahmed, England’s Tom Banton and Karachi Kings, Kamran Khan were tested positive for the coronavirus. All of them were kept on the separate floor of the biosecure bubble. However, the rising cases created a sense of panic among the players. As a result, Karachi King's all rounder, Daniel Christian, pulled out of the remainder of the Pakistan Super League.
