PCB expected to receive response from UAE govt on Covid guidelines on Thursday

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is likely to receive a response from the National Emergency and Crisis Management Authority (NCEMA) Abu Dhabi on staging the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 remainder in the city later on Thursday.

As per reports, the remaining 20 PSL matches will have to be shifted from Abu Dhabi if the quarantine conditions are not relaxed by NCEMA.

However, the PCB and the PSL management are hopeful that the remainder of the T20 tournament will resume from June 7 after it gets the reuired permission from the UAE authorities for its 16 production crew members to start working at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium from June 5.

The NCEMA will clarify whether it will grant exemptions to the production crew to start working in Abu Dhabi from June 5 or not.

Earlier, multiple reports had suggested that the PCB would shift the matches to Sharjah if the necessary permission is not granted by the NCEMA.

Significantly, the sixth season of the PSL was suspended after several players and support staff had tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this year in March.
