PSL Franchises are furious as Cricket South Africa has not totally ignored the sacrifices made by PCB. Cricket South Africa has allowed some of the key members of their teams to feature in Indian Premiere League while rejecting the idea of postponing various other matches to accommodate PSL.
PSL franchises are angry that PCB should have done more in preventing the South African management to make such a decision. The 6th edition of PSL was delayed after coronavirus outbreak in the bio-secure bubble. Only 14 games were played before it was decided to postpone the event. Now the remaining 20 games will be played in June.
Earlier PSL franchise owners had recommended to complete the PSL tournament at the end of March and the start of April, however, PCB rejected the proposal citing the financial losses for Cricket South Africa.
Now some of the big guns of South Africa will miss the Pakistani series as they will feature in IPL. The players include Kagiso Rabada, Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje. Proteas selectors have also dropped veteran batsman Faf du Plessis and Dale Steyn as they spoke against the developments.
