LAHORE (Dunya News) – The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has on Tuesday contacted the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) to seek permission for limited spectators in the 2021 Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches.

In this edition as well, we will try to convince the government to allow a fixed number of crowd, who may watch the matches strictly following the COVID-19 SOPs set by the government.”

The sixth edition of the PSL will begin on February 20 when Karachi Kings will launch bid to defend their title at home – the National Stadium Karachi – against former champions Quetta Gladiators. The final will be played at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium on March 22.
