The fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) was postponed right before the commencement of the knockout stages due to the rapidly deteriorating situation of the coronavirus pandemic. With the fate of the tournament still clouded in uncertainty, it has emerged that franchises are undecided over how the competition should be concluded.
The management of table-toppers Multan Sultans are of the opinion that the prize should be awarded to them to avoid the logistical complications of rearranging the PSL while other teams view as staging the tournament again as the viable solution.
“We do not see the rescheduling of the playoffs to be practical. If the PSL does identify a window for the playoffs in the later part of the year, who knows which players will be able to come and what the composition of the teams will be,” Multan Sultans owner Alamgir Tareen was quoted as saying by a major publication.
“The only sense we understand is to regroup and play the tournament whenever it is possible and sign off with a winner” - Qalandars co-owners Sameen Rana said.
