Seeing the 5th season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) getting postponed frustrated a lot of cricket fans. However, the health conditions weren’t normal for things to run smoothly as the prolific batsman Alex Hales is reported to have shown the signs of Corona Virus.
Amid all this, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was left with no other option than to postpone the knock-out stage of the competition. The news also reached the former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif who came forward to share his thoughts on the prevailing situation of the country.
Discussing the format of this year’s PSL while being aware of the spread of COVID-19, the cricketer turned commentator said that the tournament organizers should have limited it to 5 games per team. After that, he proposed the continuation of play-offs.
Rashid is of the view that such a format could have taken less time to help PCB complete the tournament. However, PCB stated that a drastic situation forced them to postpone the 20-over tournament and reaffirmed that it will be completed on a later date.
