PSL comes to Karachi

PSL comes to Karachi

The decision of organizing four PSL 3 matches in Karachi was taken in a meeting between Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Chief Minister of Sindh Murad Ali Shah.

I am meeting Sindh CM tomorrow to start preparations for PSL matches in Karachi.

He had earlier said that the provincial government is fully prepared, while the security situation in Karachi has also much improved.

He added that complete security will be provided to the teams visiting Karachi.

The announcement came after Sri Lanka cricket authority finally confirmed that it will go ahead with its tour of Pakistan later this month for the third and final Twenty20 match.

He tweeted as saying, "Great win! Hope the fans are smiling Pakistan Zindabad", Sethi tweeted after Pakistan's second ODI victory of the five-match series now being held against Sri Lanka in UAE. "This is a historic moment", he said of the upcoming T20 in Lahore between the two sides, as Pakistan beat Sri Lanka in the second ODI to give fans even more to cheer about. Satisfied with the security measures, ICC chose to send the World XI side to Lahore which meant that Pakistan hosted a prominent series after 8 long years post the terror attacks on the Sri Lankan cricketers back in 2009.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has put the pedal to the metal to revive worldwide cricket in Karachi, ARY News reported.

This will also be the first tour to Pakistan by a major cricket team after a bus carrying the Sri Lankan team was attacked in Lahore in 2009, except a brief tour by Zimbabwe in 2015. According to sources, the board has instructed its marketing department to keep the ticket prices within the range of Rs 500 to Rs 4000.
