PCB stuck: Either to resume PSL in November or to choose Sultans as winners

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is torn in the middle of two potential alternatives whether to pronounce Multan Sultans as the champ of the fifth release of Pakistan Super League (PSL) or to drag the association ahead in November 2020.

The inside gatherings are going on between PSL establishments and PCB to pick any of the accessible alternatives be that as it may, both the gatherings are torn because of befuddling circumstances.

As indicated by ESPN CricInfo, PCB is searching for November’s window to hold two semi-finals and a last. It is to be noticed that PSL was canceled right away because of a Coronavirus outbreak.

In any case, as indicated by solid reports, as Multan Sultans have been the legend of the whole competition so the trophy will be given over to them. The inaccessibility of sixteen remote players is additionally a monstrous issue that can stay unsolved due to Coronavirus flare-up.

Both of the thoughts can be relevant to the present circumstance.

Here are the perspectives of individuals from board of trustees and the executives:

1) Mushtaq Ahmed:

“The PSL 5 has to have a proper closure and that can be done by taking into [account] the top team on the points table at the end of the league stage and declaring them winners. If the PCB doesn’t close the PSL 5 and tries to organise the remaining four or five matches including the final later this year or before the PSL 6 it will dent the hype and spoil the momentum of the next edition,” Ahmed is quoted as saying.

2) Rana Fawad:

“We believe in competing, otherwise there is no point of having playing cricket. If this is a thought process then why we playing cricket, let’s decide a winner on toss in every game we play. The ideas of deciding a winner on the basis of a team on top in the group stage will suck out all the fun,” Rana told ESPN.

“All we have to do is find a window and we can easily afford to bring 16 players for two days on a weekend and finish the tournament on a high note.”

3) Alamgir Tareen:

“I do not see the rescheduling of the playoffs to be practical due to logistical problems.”
