There is a debate going on about the fate of PSL 5 as the league was suspended in the last stage due to covid 19.The rumours are circulating that Multan Sultan are expected to be champions because they are the most successfull team this year.
According to sources,the board officials conducted a meeting regarding the fate of the league and forwarded their suggestions to Chairman Ehsan Mani and CEO Wasim Khan.PCB is willing to discuss the matter with the franchises,later this week.
It should be noted that Shahid Afridi has earlier expresses his feeling about the champions and wants the trophy should be given to Multan Sultan.
Sad to see the PSL end, but health and safety of all concerned is the key, esp those who are travelling back to their homes.Perhaps the decision could have been taken earlier, with regards to the trophy…well the table-topper should be handed the trophy? 😊 @MultanSultans

Also the management of Multan Sultan also said that trophy should be given to them.But other franchises are having concers over that.They all want PSL semifinals to take place.
Now PCB has 3 options regarding the fate of the tournament,first the trophy should be given to Multan Sultans,second the league semifinals to take place in november and third semifinals to be played few days before next year edition.
