Rawalpindi and Multan Stadium Will be Renovated to Host PSL Matches: PCB Chairman

Following the successful hosting of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2019 matches, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Prime Minister Imran Khan are hopeful to organize the entire league in Pakistan in 2020.

If that is the case, the matches can only be held at two venues i.e. Gaddafi Stadium Lahore and National Stadium Karachi considering these are high-profile fixtures.

In response to a question regarding the possible venues for the PSL 2020, PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani told the media that renovation works are being done at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium and Multan Cricket Stadium.

He further said that PCB has spent Rs. 100 million on Rawalpindi Stadium in the previous year and it will be ready for hosting PSL matches by June/July this year. Multan Stadium is also capable of hosting international matches after some upgrading, Mani said in a press conference.

Full-houses in National Stadium Karachi were proof that PSL needs to come home for cricket-deprived fans. The atmosphere was nothing short of electric and we can hope to see more of it in the next season of PSL.

  • Sheikupura Cricket Stadium, Gujranwala Cricket Stadium, Sailkot Cricket Stadium should be upgraded by PCB, or their sports department, and smaller cities should be given more chances to see PSL matches in their respective cities. I wish, PSL should be played in every part of Pakistan, Muzaferabad, Mirpur Stadiums of AJK too.
