PSL shifts to Multan, Rawalpindi
After getting a flying start in Karachi and Lahore in spite of a couple of controversies, the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) action is now set to shift to Multan and Rawalpindi.
So far seven of the 34 matches have been played in the fifth season of the PSL, with National and Gaddafi stadiums playing host to those matches. It was a delight for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that fans have embraced the first-ever complete PSL on Pakistani soil, almost filling the galleries in every matches.
“The PCB is overwhelmed with the excellent spectator response and turnaround at the two venues for the first seven matches. When the hosting of the complete PSL 2020 was announced 12 months ago, this is exactly what the PCB had envisaged and it is grateful to all the spectators for supporting its vision and endeavour,” said the Pakistani cricket governing body in a statement.
The tournament is now on a two-day break, and it will restart on Wednesday. Multan Cricket Stadium will host the match between Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi. The next day Islamabad United and Quetta Gladiators will lock horns with each other in the Pindi Cricket Stadium.
Meanwhile the PCB has also reaffirmed their intentions of bidding to host ICC global events during the 2023-2031 cycle.
“The PCB will be firmly on the front foot in its endeavours to host ICC tournaments during the 2023-2031 ICC Events calendar. With the support of the fans and the nation behind us, we aim to keep Pakistan’s cricket moving forward.”
