PSL 5 knockout stage to take place in Pakistan
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), at its governing council meeting, ensured that the remaining PSL 5 Knockout stage will be held in Pakistan instead of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
According to a local newspaper, the government council rejected the proposal to organize the knockout stage in the UAE due to high spending. Based on the approved budget, the PCB will plan to complete PSL 2020 in November in Pakistan.
On the other hand, the PCB is also planning an alternative if the completion of the tournament would not be possible due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. It should be noted here that the PSL 5 Semifinals were suspended after the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.
