LAHORE: All six franchises of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 6 have applied for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) visas for their local players and supporting staff.
According to the sources, franchises submitted visa applications after it was decided and revealed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that the remaining 20 matches of PSL 6 will be shifted to the UAE following rising COVID-19 cases in the country.
The visa applications have been submitted in order to get visas in time as Eid Holidays are just around the corner. The visa process will start as soon as PCB and UAE officially announce the revised schedule of the event. Later on, visas for foreign players will also be applied.
It must be noted here that the remaining PSL 6 was scheduled in Karachi from June 1 to 20 with players undergoing a mandatory seven-day quarantine from May 22. But, National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) suggested PCB to shift the tournament to UAE amid the COVID-19 surge in the country.
