PSL 2021 New Dates – Unlikely to begin before 9th June: Resumption of Pakistan Super League (PSL) is likely to be delayed by a few days following late arrival of some players, officials and broadcasters. The tournament is now likely to resume on June 9 in Abu Dhabi instead of first week of next month as planned initially.

PSL, which was suspended in March this year due to Covid-19 cases, has suffered impediments prior to resumption. As many as five cricketers and two coaches from South Africa and eight Indian broadcasters were able to reach only on Saturday and will have to undergo quarantine.

Besides, 11 players and officials from Pakistan including former Pakistan and current Quetta Gladiators captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, were not allowed to board flight to Abu Dhabi via Doha and will now be sent through Bahrain. They have been sent home to spend time with their families as they await their visas.

Over 200 players, support staff and tournament officials from Pakistan — 57 persons from Karachi and 145 from Lahore — are already in Abu Dhabi for the tournament after being flown on a special charter flight on May 27.
