|| CF DESK ||
The Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 will begin from January 27 to February 27 as Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday announced the schedule for its marquee event.
The seventh edition of PSL will begin about a month earlier than usual to make room for Australia's upcoming tour in March-April.
The first 15 matches of the tournament will be played at Karachi’s National Stadium before the action moves to Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium, the venue for the next 15 league games, and the four playoffs.
“I am delighted that the HBL PSL 7 schedule has been announced,” PCB chairman Ramiz Raja was quoted by cricketpaksitan.
“This will now get the ball rolling with the teams to start planning and finalising their line-ups and the PCB increasing the pace of the operational delivery to ensure they provide quality playing facilities for the players as well as five-star experience to the fans and our valued commercial partners,”
“The HBL PSL 7 will also kick start what will be a bumper year for Pakistan cricket with the Australia men’s cricket team to play a full series in March-April with England men’s cricket side to tour Pakistan twice for white-ball and red-ball cricket,” he added.
Defending champions Multan Sultans will take on hosts and 2020 champions Karachi Kings at Pakistan’s National Stadium.
