Time for another update regarding the goings-on of the 6th Pakistan Super League. This week has been the most exciting yet, but it is also tragic as it bears bad tidings.
Firstly, the recap; the next 4 of the 34 expected matches all took place yet again in National Stadium, Karachi. Of all the teams, the Lahore Qalanders and Islamabad United are performing well with their 3:1 win ratio. Karachi Kings and Peshawari Zalmi share the second position with each having 3:2 win ratio, while Quetta Gladiators and Multan Sultans are in third place with both having a 1:4 win-loss record so far. In all the matches that took place between 28th February and 3rd March, Karachi Kings gave an exceptional performance, winning their match against the Peshawar Zalmi by 6 wickets with 3 balls, scoring the highest with 191/4.
While the feats of athleticism showed by all of these sportsmen was by all means a welcome respite in these dire times, reality has decided to strike hard to remind us again of what we are all facing. The Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to postpone the PSL tournament for at least five days in response to the 10 new COVID cases that have arisen. While the PCB has inoculated its players with the newly-arrived SARS-coronavirus vaccine, they have settled in delaying the entire tournament so as to maintain the health and good will of both its participants and the audience that attends these matches. The PCB hopes to conclude the 6th PSL at least before the end of the year.
By the grace of Allah, we hope that you recover soon. Good health and good luck to all personnel involved.
