Pakistan Super League 6th edition to be hosted by Punjab and Sindh Provinces for the second time. PCB PCB Confirms Peshawar and Quetta to Miss out PSL 2021 Matches due to construction work on Peshawar’s Arbaz Niaz Cricket Stadium and Quetta’s Bugti Stadium. The excitement went with the heartbreaking news for Zalmi and Gladiator fans.
Cricket returned to Pakistan when the entire PSL 5 season announced last year but didn’t conclude due to global pandemic Covid-19. In November, Pakistan is all set to host PSL 2020 Final and knock-out stage matches. Last year PCB announced if construction work completed at Arbaz Niaz and Bugti Stadium, then both will host PSL 6th edition.
The construction work delayed due to Covid-19 as PCB confidently said that they would bring cricket to Peshawar and make it the 6th stadium to host PSL matches. The delegation from Pakistan Cricket Broad recently visited the Arbaz Niaz Stadium Peshawar. The renovation work is far behind the completion as scheduled and planed last year. The stadium won’t be able to host the next PSL season 6th matches.
PCB Planned to include Bugti Stadium Quetta last year, but it does not meet the specific criteria to host international level games. The stadium was in line to get it ready with the Arbaz Niaz Stadium, but it didn’t work. So far, it’s confirmed by PCB that it will not host PSL 2021. Quetta is desperately waiting to see international level cricket at their soil.
Peshawar’s stadium Arbaz Niaz is home to one of the strongest sides of PSL Peshawar Zalmi while Bugti Stadium Quetta also home to Quetta Gladiators. Both teams have won titles once and have a huge crazy fan base all over the PSL fans. The home is desperately waiting to see live-action by the great players. Fans were expecting to have PSL 6th edition matches at Peshawar and Quetta.
