    The govt needs to assist the PCB in upgrading the stadiums in all of the Franchises home cities and make plans for first class hotel accomodation. If the govt is on board and operates on a war footing, it can be done in one year.

    The PSL can play a big role in bringing FDI in Pakistan

    Stadium is situated in the middle of population. Saw a video on YouTube it is in very bad shape and the renovation is going on sneal pace.It is far from international standard and won.t be available for atleast 2 more years

    Karachi

    Multan
    Faislabad (Quetta / Peshawar)

    Can easily hold their matches at home and play home away, it would be more entertaining and all matches would be house full.

    The only feasible grounds ATM are: Lahore, Karachi and Faisalabad.

    Not a bad start. Could add one venue every edition.

    Add Faisalabad and Multan to it and we can easily hold the whole PSL in Pakistan next year In sha Allah and after 2-3 down the line we can expand to other cities as well like Peshawar etc.

    Im aware of these excellent stadia, but unfortunately multan has no 5 star hotels, and given pcb's incompetence when it comes to solving such issues, i dont see it being dealt with in time.

    Well then I hope he puts in the billions to renovate the existing stadiums and supports that. Pindi and Faisalabad should serve them well. Curious when international matches were played in Multan, where did everyone stay (hotel) then?

    Pindi and faisalabad should be feasible, I wish Peshawar was able but the stadium needs much renovations. If all psl is held in Pakistan next year, it will be long dream of mine come true. Then we can work on next dream: getting international cricket back in Pakistan. I just pray for stable and secure conditions for Pakistan

    Great to hear this but some of our stadiums could do with some work. Karachi and Lahore would be locked. They have plenty of other options. But stadiums are not the only area we need to fix. There is a large amounts of work to do.

    It would be sad if PSL won't be fully played in Pakistan next year. Pakistan needs the PSL in Pakistan as a source of revenue and strengthening cricket infrastructure. If PSL can generate 25% or more of PCB's revenue, then it will be very good for all stakeholders.

    People should not get their hopes up with respect to hosting matches in Peshawar. It is simply not going to happen in the near future due to multiple reasons.

    Firstly, most foreign players are unlikely to agree to play there due to security reasons. It is very safe now and there is no doubt that we can provide adequate security to the players, but I donít think it will be enough to change the perception/image of the city.

    Secondly, the stadium is in very poor shape and is still living in the 80ís. It requires a major overhaul and considering the location of the stadium, it is not very feasible.

    Good decision. I was getting tired of the boring Dubai/ Abu Dhabi matches where the average score was 120 approx. runs. And then it would take the other team to chase 120 odd runs in 20 overs. Plus the empty stadiums made things worse. Hopefully they do end up hosting the entire PSL in Pakistan next year.

    Only way to find out is to try it. We need to restart Cricket in Pak now. If after the attack in NZ Cricket will most likely continue in that country then it's time for us to be given a chance to continue as well.

    International cricket takes greater precedence, we have a World Cup on our hands soon.

    However PSL did at least bring cricket home and Karachi pitches and atmosphere was excellent - a far cry from UAE.

    Next year PSL should be extended to Rawalpindi, Multan and Faisalabad. Peshawar and Quetta hosting matches is a long way away.

    na, international cricket doesnt have festival feeling.

    In PSL, it doesnt matter which team wins, it just feels great having a wonderful tournament going on that could also be followed as there are Pakistani players playing.

    I just feel soo sad right now, and i have never felt like this about a cricket tournament ever. I never felt like this for the past PSLs aswell.

    Im just soo gutted right now.

    This partly because our national team, more often than not, isn't able to compete well against the top quality sides (CT being the aberration).

    na, its not about that.

    World cups dont give that festival feeling to me.

    PSL on the other hand is like a cricket festival and its a Pakistani festival.

    I have watched lots of Pakistan cricket in the past, watched alot of tournaments like world cup, Asia cup and long tour series.

    But the PSL season provides something different. You have games going on, then each moment gets a meme made and all.

    Its like when you finish binge watching your favourite TV series, your like now what.

    Multan stadium is quite big. I'm surprise that they got such a big stadium built there.

    Faisalabad stadium is a crowd puller. I remember that stadium use to host Faysel Bank t20s and it used to be a packed stadium. No stadium was able to pull crowds like Faisalabad.

    Infact, small cities like Faisalabad or Multan pull more crowd than major cities like Lahore or Karachi.

    The pindi stadium crowd of Islamabad fans is terrible. The most boring crowd ever. I watched an islamabad united celebratory match with that crowd and it was a very dull crowd. THey didn't know how to cheer, to shy to make noise and all.

    In the same stadium i sat with a pindi crowd for Faysel Bank T20 and it was complete opposite. They made noise and kept on cheering.

    I saw a Faisal Bank t20 match in Pindi stadium some years back and the stadium was jam-packed. Lol bari mushkil sai andar gaye thay.

    Faisalabad i agree has packed stadiums in domestic T20s. Can it host PSL matches? Dont think security is an issue is Faisalabad.

    Dont tell me you were also part of that crowd which was not being allowed to go in even if you had a valid ticket because somehow PCB had over sold the stadium, and the police were hitting the crowd with sticks, and at the end you had to break the gates with the crowd force to get in.


    I was part of that crowd , it was one hell of a night.

    KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah has directed the commissioner of Hyderabad Division and the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board to initiate necessary measures for repairing and maintenance of Niaz Stadium Hyderabad to develop it into a national-level stadium, where next year Pakistan Super League cricket events could be played.

    The chief minister has issued these instructions to the commissioner and the PCB chairman through letters written to them separately on Monday urging them to start preparations right now so that the stadium could be repaired and renovated and stay of cricket teams and other guests as per required standard could be made possible.

    Niaz Stadium, where the first Test match was played in 1973, has a capacity to accommodate 15,000 spectators.

    It was built in early 1960s whereas so far only five Test matches have been played; two each against England and New Zealand, and one against India. The inaugural test match was played in March 1973 against England.

    The last Test was played in Niaz Stadium between Pakistan and New Zealand in November 1984 and an international match was played in January 2008 between Pakistan and Zimbabwe after 10 years.

    Speaking at a dinner hosted by Chief Secretary Syed Mumtaz Ali Shah in honour of officers for organising successful PSL matches in Karachi, the chief minister congratulated all stakeholders, including the Karachi administration, the local government, Sindh police, the Pakistan Army, the Rangers and intelligence agencies for making PSL successful. He stated that holding eight matches of PSL in Karachi was a challenge for the provincial government when other cities were not able to hold PSL matches due to logistical and other issues.

    The Sindh government accepted the challenge and made all arrangements in a very short period of time. He vowed to hold PSL matches in Hyderabad next year as well.
