Lahore, Rawalpindi matches to go ahead as scheduled

The Pakistan Super League (PSL) season eight matches will be held in Lahore and Rawalpindi as per schedule, as the deadlock between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the interim Punjab government is expected to end today.

Minister of Health from the interim government, Dr. Javed Akram, has confirmed to Express News that the PSL matches will not be shifted from Lahore and Rawalpindi to Karachi.

The interim Punjab government had demanded PKR500 million from PCB to conduct the matches in Lahore and Rawalpindi. The board has already paid PKR50 million to Punjab government for expenses on food.

The provincial government is now demanding the remaining PKR450 million for lighting and security purposes. In order to save these expenses, the board is now considering shifting the Punjab-leg of PSL 8 to Karachi.

According to sources, the interim Government of Punjab has decided to be flexible on lights, security and other expenses. Sixty percent of the bill payment will be borne by the Punjab government while forty percent will be borne by the PCB.

In this matter, the PCB and interim government representatives will settle the matter today. 

During the meeting between the aforementioned parties on Friday, PCB had flatly refused to pay the bills of PKR450 million for security, lights, and other expenses handed over by the government.  

Matches in Lahore will start from February 26, while Rawalpindi will host the PSL matches from March 1.
