PSL 2020 postponed

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has postponed the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 amid the coronavirus outbreak.


While the PCB has carefully used the word “postponed” in its announcements, several media reports, citing officials and franchise members, reported that the tournament has been called off.

The news was confirmed on PSL’s official Twitter handed and added that the two semifinals and final match will be rescheduled.



Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar agreed with the PCB’s decision to postpone the PSL, saying that “at this time of hour we needed to do what the world was doing”.

He added that “the PCB should have called off the tournament a week ago as without the crowd it was no fun.”

Table-toppers Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi were set to compete in the first sem-final while the second fixture was scheduled between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars today itself.
