These PSL Matches in Lahore & Rawalpindi are Likely to be Called Off Due to Rain


Two PSL matches have already been impacted due to inclement weather, including a complete washout between Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi and a 12-over match between Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars.

The following matches will be rescheduled if PCB officially confirms the development:

Day Date Match Venue
Thursday 5th March Peshawar Zalmi vs. Quetta Gladiators Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium
Friday 6th March Karachi Kings vs. Multan Sultans  Gaddafi Stadium Lahore
Saturday 7th March Peshawar Zalmi vs. Islamabad United Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium
Saturday 7th March Lahore Qalandars v Quetta Gladiators  Gaddafi Stadium Lahore

Both, Lahore and Rawalpindi, are hosting two matches each during the period. It remains to be seen whether the matches are rescheduled or not, however, it is highly unlikely since it presents great logistical challenges as well to move the matches on such short notice.

  • Thanks goodness. Wish such games that put nation in inconveniences should never take place. Cricket is a good game only if it is limited to international cricket. Cricket leagues in honest opinion is a “Jua* for gamblers who destroyed reputation of good cricket for the sake of money etc etc. Closing roads, shops, markets, important interconnected roads and streets give people immense problems specifically when stadiums are located in residential and commercial areas
