The Pakistan Cricket Board is looking at the June window to stage the remaining matches of the suspended 2021 Pakistan Super League, a statement from the PSL said on Thursday.

The franchises, PSL governing council and the cricket board are planning to host the remaining matches in Karachi.

"This was unanimously agreed by the six franchise owners and the PCB in a virtual meeting held on Thursday afternoon and after taking into consideration all factors relating to event organisation," PSL said on its official website.

June emerged as the most preferred and practical window due to Pakistan cricket team’s international commitments in March-April and late August-September.

"The remaining 20 matches in June are now being planned following the men’s national cricket team’s return from Zimbabwe on 13 May and before their departure for England on 26 June," the statement said.

"The PCB management will now look into the operational and logistical challenges and revert to the franchise owners and stakeholders."

The 2021 edition of the PSL, which began on February 20, was suspended on March 4 due to seven positive Covid-19 cases.
