Recently, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) revealed that the remaining matches of The PSL 6 would be played between the 1st of June to the 20th of June.
According to reports, many players will be unavailable for the matches; most of the players selected in the original draft won’t be available due to scheduling conflicts. Sources state that, unfortunately, no English players will participate in the remaining season of The PSL.
However, plenty of stars worldwide have expressed an interest in Pakistan’s premier T20 competition. Stars from Australia, New Zealand, and the West Indies have made themselves available for the tournament.
