With the world getting hit by the deadly Corona Virus, many activities including cricket was disturbed. As a result, cricket series and tournaments across the globe got suspended or postponed. Similarly, Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 had to be postponed after the tournament entered into its knock-out stages.
The rescheduling of the 20-over competition is attracting a lot of debate and recently Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has discarded the notion of handling trophy to Multan Sultans. Therefore, sources claim that the knock-out stage of the tournament can happen around the home series against Zimbabwe in November. Moreover, the foreign cricketers will be contacted for their availability during the said time.
It is important to note that Lahore, Multan, Karachi and Peshawar were the four teams qualifying for the final-four stage of the competition as the play-offs were replaced by semi-finals. As per the points table, Karachi is meant to lock horns with Lahore while Peshawar will face Multan in the knock-outs of the competition. However, it is understood that PCB might revert back to holding the play-offs.
