‘Our first option is completion of PSL 5’ Wasim Khan


Karachi: Cheif Executive Wasim Khan said that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has initially no other priorities than staging the knock-out stage of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 5. 

Speaking to ESPNcricinfo, Khan said that the cricket board will plan things related to completing PSL 5 once the situation across the world gets free from coronavirus.

“We’re currently looking at when we can reschedule the remaining matches to be played, and we’re confident we’ll get those done at the back end of the year, subject to obviously all things going well,” Khan said.

The CEO doesn’t want to hand over the trophy to Multan Sultans-table toppers without any competition as it would reduce the excitement.

“There’s no fun, right, in just handing it over to Multan Sultans at the moment? Although they’ll probably be pushing for that. Our first point is to go for completion and if it can’t happen then as other leagues around the world have done is to then declare a winner,” he maintained.

Meanwhile, Khan called PSL 5 a great success for Pakistan’s cricket as the entire edition was staged in Pakistan. “Despite the fact we had to postpone at the semi-final stage, we felt it was a massive, massive success, particularly based off the feedback we’ve had from around the world,” he concluded.
