PSL 8 Lahore-Rawalpindi leg to go as per schedule: Sethi

LAHORE: The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) management committee Najam Sethi on Sunday provided a much-anticipated update regarding the future of the Lahore and Rawalpindi leg of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) eight.

Taking to Twitter, Sethi revealed that the caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab Mohsin Naqvi has agreed to share the cost of lighting routes during PSL 8 matches here.

“Good news: CM Punjab Mohsin Naqvi Saheb has been kind enough to agree to share cost of lighting routes during PSL matches in Lahore,” wrote Sethi.

“HBL PSL8 matches in Lahore and Pindi shall continue as scheduled,” he added.


A deadlock emerged between the PCB and the caretaker Punjab government over the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season eight’s Lahore and Rawalpindi leg security expenditures.

The Punjab government demanded PCB pay off PKR 500m to make security arrangements for the second leg of the ongoing extravaganza. At the same time, the cricket board was adamant about not paying the stipulated sum.

Following the deadlock, the PCB and all six franchises held several meetings to discuss different way forwards which included shifting the entire second leg to Karachi.
