PCB chairman to meet Sindh CM tomorrow to bring PSL to Karachi

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi will meet Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday to discuss preparations for hosting Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches in Karachi.

Sethi announced the news in a tweet on Tuesday, asking fans to wish him luck.

“I am meeting Sindh CM tomorrow to start preparations for PSL matches in Karachi. Wish me luck!”

The meeting will take place at the CM House at 11 am tomorrow. It will be attended by sports ministers and other officials of the provincial government, sources privy to the matter said.

According to reports, Murad Ali Shah has assured the PCB chairman of full cooperation on hosting PSL matches in Karachi. He also assured of complete security arrangements needed for the events.

The Sri Lankan cricket team on Monday confirmed that it will tour Pakistan for the final of the three-day T20 international series between the two countries later this month.

“This is a historic moment,” Sethi said about the news, as Pakistan secured its second victory against Sri Lanka in their second match of the 5-day ODI series being played in Abu Dhabi.

“Great win! Great news too about the Lahore T20. Hope the fans are smiling 🙂 Pakistan Zindabad,” Sethi tweeted.

Sri Lankan team will play the T20 international match, the third of three-match T20 international series, on October 29, after playing the first two matches in UAE.

The match is yet another step towards restoration of international cricket in Pakistan. Last month, Pakistan hosted a star-studded World XI side led by South Africa’s Faf du Plessis.

This will also be the first tour to Pakistan by a major cricket team after a bus carrying the Sri Lankan team was attacked in Lahore in 2009, except a brief tour by Zimbabwe in 2015.
