PSL is one of the high profile T20 tournament being played in Pakistan and now it will be heading towards its fifth successive season in the upcoming year. The tournament consists of six teams with many high-profile players like Shane Watson and Darren Sammy playing in it.
Meanwhile, the tentative dates for the opening ceremony as well as for the finals have been made confirmed by the sources. Pakistan Cricket Board has already cleared the fact that the upcoming season of PSL will take place in Pakistan. But, the schedule for the same is still to be finalised. In this year, Pakistan successfully hosted Sri Lanka for T20I, ODI and Test series and PCB looks quite stern on their decision to organize the league in their own nation instead of playing in UAE.
Moreover, it will be an interesting thing to watch whether the overseas players will come and play in the subcontinent nation or not. In the previous season, Quetta Gladiators had lifted the trophy as they defeated Peshawar Zalmi by a margin of eight wickets.
