The remaining matches of the sixth edition of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) season six, after being suspended halfway due to multiple Covid-19 cases among players and officials in March, will now be held in Abu Dhabi.

Players, along with television production crew from India and South Africa, have been allowed to travel to UAE via chartered flights, according to the details. It was agreed, however, that the flight will land in a different city.
