Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the schedule of the remaining four Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 matches, which were postponed on 17th March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The four matches will be held in Lahore on 14, 15, and 17 November with only the Qualifier and Eliminator 1 to be a double-header. Eliminator 2 will be played on the following day, while the event will conclude on Tuesday, 17 November.

The dates have been finalized following consultations and discussions with the four playing sides – Multan Sultans, Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars, and Peshawar Zalmi – while start times will be confirmed closer to the event.

The final four matches of the event will be played under Covid-19 protocols, including a bio-secure bubble for the players, match officials, and event-related staff. The matches are currently planned to be held behind closed doors, though the situation will be closely monitored and will be reviewed in October.

PCB Chief Executive, Wasim Khan, said:

This announcement puts speculations to bed and provides absolute clarity and ample time for teams to plan and prepare for these crunch matches. It was important at this stage to state our intent and lock these dates in the diary in the best interest of the teams and the tournament.

“All domestic 2020-21 season matches will prove to be a catalyst for the successful planning and delivery of the HBL Pakistan Super League 2021, which will be held in February/March next year”.

From the four sides to feature in the remaining PSL 2020 matches, only Peshawar Zalmi is a former winner, lifting the trophy in Lahore in 2017, which not only makes these four matches more exciting but also fills the fans with anticipation.
