The things have been confirmed by the PCB Chief Executive Officer Wasim Khan. Through a teleconference, he stated that he wants a meeting with the franchise team officials for further discussion. There are some who have suggested announcing the Multan Sultans as the winner of the Pakistan Super League 5. Because they are holding the top position on the point table. Also, there is another choice. Before the next edition of the Pakistan Super League, the rest matches of PSL 5 can be taken place. But, PCB will try to arrange the last three matches of the PSL 5 in next November 2020.
