Bangladesh tour to Pakistan both cricket boards have agreed to postpone the upcoming third leg of their series of 1 ODI and a Test in Karachi in early April in light of growing concerns around the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) and travel restrictions around the world.
The Bangladesh squad was thanks to arriving in Karachi on March 29 to play an ODI on April 1 and therefore the second World Test Championship match from April 5.
The boards will explore windows to finish the series also as a slot in another match game scheduled for March 2021.
Despite the cancellation of the tour, and of cricket and other sports events around the world following the spread
of the pandemic the PSL has continued to run after getting permission from the govt of Punjab – the games are
being played behind closed doors to empty stands and therefore the schedule has been tweaked to shave four days off the first.
As such though the province – of which Lahore the venue of the knockout matches maybe a part – is under
Section 144 a law that bans all private and public sports activity also like other public gatherings.
But notwithstanding the regulations both the National Stadium in Karachi and Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore have
had an outsized presence of media persons during the games and post-match presentation ceremonies and
press conferences are fairly crowded with representatives of the PCB and other stakeholders attending.
As for the overseas presence within the PSL over a dozen, cricketers have left Pakistan for a home with Chris
Lynn becoming the newest to go away his decision became public soon after he hit a match-winning century
against Multan Sultans to place his team Lahore Qalandars within the PSL knockouts for the primary time.
The PCB has skilled the exodus of foreign players by allowing teams to finish their XIs with local players as
required and also replace the overseas players with local ones.
Meanwhile, the PCB has also indefinitely postponed the domestic Pakistan Cup one-day tournament, featuring
six provincial teams that were scheduled to start out on Annunciation and run until April 24 with matches played
in Karachi, Multan, Lahore, and Faisalabad.
