The PCB said that the delayed start of the tournament was not its fault as the "logistical and operational challenges" were beyond the board's control. However, it said the delay will also "allow the sides sufficient time to train, practice and gear up for the biggest prize in Pakistan’s cricket calendar".

Currently, two teams of the PSL — United and Qalandars — have resumed training, while the other four sides will start training from today.
