PSL LIVE CEREMONY
Imran Khan announced last year that he wants 2020’s entire Pakistan Super League (PSL) season to be held on home soil, there were serious doubts about the practicality of the Prime Minister’s wish.
The opening gala will also include riveting acts and a spectacular fireworks show. This will be followed by the opening match of the tournament between defending champions Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United.
Pakistan’s cricket authorities had been facing serious issues in getting foreign players to play a few matches in the country. To have them here for a whole month seemed like an impossible task.
But the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) treated Imran’s wish as their command. Now less than a year later, the fifth edition of HBL PSL will explode into action on Thursday (today) with all of its 34 matches taking place in Pakistan.
It’s a big leap forward for the previously nomadic T20 League which was born at the near-empty Dubai International Stadium back in 2016.
