The stage is set for the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League, with six teams, a host of international cricketers and our very own superstars bringing their fight for the title to Pakistan.
PSL 5 will kick off from Thursday (February 20) and conclude on March 22.
The 34 matches of the T20 tournament will be played in four international venues — Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Multan.
The opening ceremony of the tournament will take place at Karachi’s National Stadium, where more than 350 artists are slated to perform to what is expected to be a full house.
Reigning champions Quetta Gladiators will open the event, taking on two-time former winners Islamabad United.
The playoffs, including the final, will be played at the Qaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
