PSL Final 2018 in Karachi

PSL 2018 Final match to be held in Karachi

Final of PSL 2018 will be played in Karachi confirms Shahryar

Psl Final 2018 ShehryarkhanThe Pakistan Cricket Board have announced that the PSL Final for the third edition of the tournament in 2018 will be held in Karachi.

The final of the 2018 edition of Pakistan Super League will be played in Karachi according to the confirmed PSL schedule that was released by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Three matches during the third PSL will be held in Pakistan; two Eliminators in Lahore and the final in Karachi. These games will be played on March 20, 21 and 25 respectively.

Yep, please mark these dates in your calendars – the three dates on which the PSL will be played in Pakistan this year. Last season, there was just one game played in Pakistan during the PSL – the final was held in Lahore – but this year will see three matches hosted in the country which should send the fans in raptures.

This third edition of the tournament will kick-start from February and a total of 30 league games will be held in Dubai and Sharjah. The first Eliminator will also be played in the UAE before the teams fly down to Pakistan for the remaining three finals matches.

In a PCB press release, they announced, “Teams will play twice against each other before the top four teams qualify for the play-off stage. Fans will get a chance to see their favourite stars in a total of 34 games played across four venues. Efforts are underway to stage two playoff games in Lahore followed by what would be a historic PSL final in Karachi.”

PCB chief Najam Sethi also said he hoped fans would turn up in huge numbers to support the PSL teams for this third edition of the tournament. The PSL 2018 ticket prices are expected to go up on sale closer to the start of the tournament and can be expected to be economically priced.

Peshawar Zalmi will take on Multan Sultans in the season opener which will be followed by a double-header on Friday, February 23 in the same city. Karachi Kings will take on Quetta Gladiators and Multan Sultans will play Lahore Qalandars that evening.

Islamabad United will kick-start their campaign on Saturday with a game against Peshawar Zalmi and on the same day the Gladiators will also face the Qalandars.

This will be the first ever edition featuring six PSL teams instead of five and each side will play each other twice. This will account for a total of 30 matches during the league stage of the competition that will last till Friday, March 16.

This will be followed by the playoffs that will be held from March 18 onward. The top two sides in the group stages of the competition will clash first up, with the winner qualifying for the final. This will be followed by an Eliminator on Tuesday, March 20, with the losing team bowing out and the winning side taking on the losing team from the first Qualifier.

This third match, also an Eliminator, will be played on Wednesday, March 21, while the final will be held four days later on March 25.

These two Eliminators will be played in Lahore while the final will be held in Karachi. These are the only three matches that will be played in Pakistan according to this Pakistan Super League schedule.
