PSL 2021: Updated squads of all six franchises
The sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has been a real struggle for the Pakistan Cricket Board. The tournament was postponed in March after an outbreak of COVID -19 inside the bio bubble. Post that, the PCB decided to resume the tournament from June 1 in Karachi. However, a spike in COVID-19 cases in Pakistan forced them to move the tournament out of Pakistan to UAE. We are already into the first week of June and there is no clarity on when the PSL will resume. The PCB is looking to start the tournament on June 7 but their camera crew is yet to receive clearance from the Abu Dhabi government. Pakistan has to leave for England on June 25 thus PCB needs to resume the league as soon as possible. Take a look our full betway india review and get some free tips from us.
