The Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) has agreed to hold the remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League 2021, which was suspended earlier this year due to the worsening situation of Covid -19 in the region.

The news comes as Pakistan is concerned about the UAE's delayed response to the PCB's request for a No Objection Certificate (NOC).

According to the reports, the ECP has informed the PCB about the decision while the latter has started operational preparation in this regard.

According to the PCB, as the holiday period has already started in both the countries and the Pakistan men’s national cricket team has to depart for the United Kingdom on 23 June, the PCB will use this time to work with the Emirates Cricket Board to check if the event can be successfully delivered within the available time

“During the holiday period, the PCB will work on a revised tournament schedule, while it will liaise with the ECB in relation to finalising playing and training facilities, hotel bookings, ground transportation and visitors’ visas,” read the official statement.

PCB will carry out a detailed financial and risk assessment as well as cost analysis before reporting back to the franchises, who will then review before a decision on the event venue is confirmed.
