According to sources, the board is considering moving the matches to Karachi after receiving a bill of Rs500 million from Punjab’s provincial government.
Sources said the reason behind this move is to save money. According to the sources, the Sindh government is not charging anything from the PCB to host PSL matches in Karachi.
They further said that the PCB has already paid Rs50 million for food and beverages to the Punjab government. However, the provincial government is pressurising the board to pay the remaining Rs450 million as soon as possible in order to make security arrangements.
Remember that The opening ceremony of PSL 8 was held in Multan on 13 February 202. The first match was played between 2021 winners Multan Sultans and defending champions Lahore Qalandars; meanwhile, the final will be played on 19th March in Lahore.
