Coronavirus cases in Sindh are increasing by the day and to further prevent its spread, the Sindh government has advised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to conduct the Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches with no crowd.
The PCB has agreed to the request made by the health authorities, meaning that the PSL matches will be held without any fans in the stands, starting tomorrow.
Barring today’s match, Karachi still has four more matches, including the Qualifier. Advisor to the Sindh Chief Minister, Murtaza Wahab, has confirmed the development, sharing the news on Twitter:
#SindhGovt has decided that the remaining matches of PSL in Karachi will take place without any crowd. This decision has been made after consultation with all stakeholders including the Pakistan Cricket Board.
