Sindh government has announced that tickets for Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) Karachi matches will be available for purchase from February 20.
The minister for Sindh local government Saeed Ghani made this announcement while talking to media on Friday.
Ghani said that all the preparations to host five PSL matches in the metropolitan city have been completed. He said the security plan had been finalized and that the fans will be given the best facilities to enjoy the cricket fest.
He explained that a special shuttle service would accommodate the fans from parking to the stadium and a temporary hospital would be set up in case of an emergency.
The minister further informed that the university road would remain open for traffic during the matches.
“We will try to provide best possible facilities during the PSL matches,” he said.
Earlier, a committee under Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah’s chairmanship finalized the security plan which includes deployment of 6,000 personnel of Police, Rangers, Traffic Police, and Intelligence Agencies.
According to the plan, snipers will be positioned on surrounding buildings and a helicopter will also be used for aerial surveillance.
It is pertinent to mention here that Karachi successfully hosted the PSL 3 finals last year which is the reason why PCB, this time around, has given the city five matches to host.
This year, five matches are scheduled to take place at Karachi’s National Stadium.
In the first scheduled match, Karachi Kings will take on Peshawar Zalmi on March 10. The other four games, including eliminators and the grand finale, will also be played at the National Stadium on March 13, 15 and 17 respectively.
