According to sources, the PCB is awaiting the advice of the NCOC in this regard as the NCOC will issue a directive on whether the PSL matches will be held in Karachi or not.

Sources said that if the NCOC directs the PCB not to hold the event in Karachi, then it would be shifted to the UAE as it is necessary for the PCB to complete the event and it is difficult to get a window ahead.
