The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Thursday that the UAE government had given its approval for the remaining 20 matches of the Pakistan Super League twenty20 tournament to be played in Abu Dhabi.

In March, the board's flagship tournament was called off after seven people, including six players, tested positive for Covid-19.

The date and details of the matches will be announced later after consultation with the franchise owners, the PCB said.

"We are delighted with this development as the remaining hurdles in the staging of the remaining PSL 6 matches in Abu Dhabi have been overcome and all systems are now good to go," PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan said in a board statement.

"The PCB, in consultation with the team owners, will now work at pace to finalise all event-related arrangements, details of which will be shared in due course."
