The Pakistan Super League will resume in June after it was suspended last week when six players and a staffer tested positive for COVID-19.

The Pakistan Cricket Board and owners of the six clubs made the decision on Thursday, a week after the Twenty20 league was postponed.

The remaining 20 games will be played in Karachi _ which also staged the first 14 games _ before the national team’s departure to England on June 26.

June was the most practical window due to Pakistan’s international commitments in March-April and late August-September.
