PSL 6 is tentatively proposed to kick start from February 20 to March 22, with only two cities, Karachi and Lahore, as its hosts. The final dates and venues for the series are yet to be approved.

However, the matches are set to be held behind closed doors, and players will be staying in a strict bio-secure bubble throughout the tournament.

According to sources, the salary cap for the topmost category in PSL — the platinum category is proposed to be between US$130,000 to US$170,000. Previously the platinum category players would get between US$ 147,000 to US$217,000.
