PCB considering to shift PSL 6 remainder from Abu Dhabi to Sharjah

After health authorities in Abu Dhabi revoked the clearance previously granted to the 16 Indian broadcasters, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering to shift the remainder of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) to Sharjah from the UAE capital, which has strict coronavirus protocols in place.

As per reports, the broadcasters were in isolation for two days in Dubai before the local health authorities suddenly objected to their clearance.

In such a scenario, the PCB is making high-level efforts to resolve the issue as it could lead to further delay in the resumption of the T20 tournament.

Reports said that the Indian broadcasters were asked by the Abu Dhabi health authorities to leave the hotel where they were isolating and were later sent to Dubai.

Meanwhile, issuing a statement, the PCB said late on Tuesday: “National Crisis & Emergency Management Authority (NCEMA) to decide on Wednesday afternoon if they will grant exemptions to 16 production crew to work in Abu Dhabi from June 5 to make June 7 start possible.”

“PCB will continue to engage with the Abu Dhabi government,” it added.

The board also announced that the PSL 6 will now end on June 24 instead of 20 June, which was planned earlier.
