Pakistan Super League 2021 has been postponed after more COVID-19 cases emerged on Thursday, taking the total number of infected players to seven.

This decision was taken after the Pakistan Cricket Board held an emergency virtual meeting with the franchises.

According to the PCB (as per Dawn), they took the decision to delay “following a meeting with the team owners and considering the health and wellbeing of all participants.”

The board said that the three new cases of Coronavirus are from two different teams. They further added that the latest cases were not from the four teams that played in Wednesday’s double-header matches, which were Peshawar Zalmi, Karachi Kings, Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators.

So far, fourteen of the scheduled 34 matches have been played, with Karachi sitting at the top but having the same points as Peshawar, Islamabad and Lahore.

The first PSL match took place on February 20 between the Kings and the Gladiators. The final was scheduled to be played on March 22.
