#CricketComesHome: PSL Showcases The Craze for the Game [Photos]

Pakistanis, being the most resilient nation in the world, have fought against terrorism for over 15 years and are also currently defeating the menace at all levels. After the deadly attack on the Srilankan Cricket Team in 2009, international cricket left Pakistan for quite a long time but thanks to PSL, our cricket stadiums have come back to life again.

Last year, the hashtag ‘#CricketComesHome’ went viral on Twitter as the World XI and Srilankan Cricket Team visited Lahore for their matches. This year, PSL has brought more than just a single match to Pakistan.
