The Pakistan Super League was pulled off right before the semifinals. The first semifinal will take place between the top-seeded Multan Sultans and fourth-placed Peshawar, whereas, the second semifinal is all set to be played between Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings who finished second and third on the points table respectively.
Before the Coronavirus outrage, the PSL was scheduled for playoffs wherein the team finishing at the top would have two chances of making it to the finals.

This move shortened the tournament by one match, but eventually, right before the knockouts, the PCB had to pull off the tournament.

When the tournament was called off due to the coronavirus outbreak, many international players flew back to their respective countries leaving the team management scratching their heads.
Many unknown, uncapped faces were drafted into the squads to fill up for the players who left which resulted in a lack of interest and competition in the following matches. The Pakistan Cricket Board had to forcefully pull-off due to this outrage but once the tournament is back on track when things get better, the players who left due to COVID-19 scare will be back as well.
However, the PCB officials haven't announced any official date for the knockouts, and if rumors are to be believed, the tournament is expected to resume not before November 2020. Here is the Fantasy cricket prediction.
