PSL matches

Peshawar would be hosting the PSL matches in the upcoming editions of the league. The policy of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to take it to all parts of the country is slowly becoming possible as the Arbab Niaz Stadium of Peshawar is all ready to host the matches of the Pakistan Super League in the next edition of the tournament.

The last ODI that the ground hosted is the match between Pakistan and India in 2006.

Javed Afridi, the Peshawar Zalmi owner has given confirmation about the development in a tweet. He congratulated his fans. He further said that he has offered what he vowed and thanked the PSL, PCB, and the government of KPK for making it possible.

PSL 5 was hosted completely in the country before it was postponed owing to the coronavirus pandemic. The fifth edition of the league occurred in Multan, Lahore, Rawalpindi, and Karachi. It was for the first time in the history that Multan and Rawalpindi hosted any matches.

The owner of the Quetta Gladiators, Nadeem Omer, and the fans are also trying to bring the game to their home ground, but, it appears that Quetta would be getting the matches in the 2021 season.

If the matches of the league are played on the home ground and on away basis, it would be adding great flavor to the already successful league as the home support would be extensive for every team.
