In 2017 PSL final was held in Lahore’s Gaddafi stadium rest of the matches of PSL season 2 were played in UAE, in 2018 2 eliminators were played in Lahore and Karachi hosted the final, that was the first time Karachi has hosted any high-profile cricket event since an armed attack on the Sri Lankan team in early 2009, which virtually halted international cricket in Pakistan.
Prime Minister Imran Khan is looking positive for bringing all matches of PSL season 5 to Pakistan “I am not hoping, I am confident that all the matches of the next season of PSL will be played in Pakistan,”
PCB announced to host eight matches of the PSL 4 in the country. Initially, Lahore was to host three matches, while five matches, including the final of the tournament, was to be played in Karachi. However, due to political tensions with India, the flight schedule of the country got disturbed and the matches of Lahore had to be shifted to Karachi as well.
This time, all the international stars, including Shane Watson agreed to visit Pakistan to play the remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League.
Now, the government and also the cricket board is making all possible efforts to take their glittering league completely to Pakistan from the next season of the PSL.
