Web Desk

In line with the growing international norm, a small number of fans could be allowed at the stadiums during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020, Geo News reported on Thursday citing sources.

Preliminary talks with marketing companies regarding the sale of tickets have reportedly been held. 

The management of PSL had earlier sought permission from the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) to allow fans to watch the sixth edition in the stadium.

It was reported that the cricket authorities will make the final decision on allowing crowds to watch the matches in stadiums after the NCOC gives its verdict. 

If allowed, the board will ensure strict compliance to coronavirus SOPs.

The sixth edition of the league will be played between February and March in Karachi and Lahore.

Initially, the PCB had planned to extend the 2021 venue list by including Peshawar but owing to COVID-19 pandemic, the management decided to restrict locations to two cities.

In the opening match on February 20, defending champions Karachi Kings will face 2019 winners Quetta Gladiators.

The matches will continue in Karachi till March 7 before the action shifts to Lahore for the second phase from March 10 when Peshawar Zalmi will face Karachi Kings at the Gaddafi Stadium.
