Venue of PSL 2018:
In last season of PSL 2017, final match was played in Pakistan (Lahore Qaddafi Stadium) which was the best way to reopen international cricket way in Pakistan. For now PSL chairman Najam Sethi has already said that I would try to play at least eight PSL matches in Pakistan. Najam Sethi announced that Final match will be played in Karachi or Lahore and other Playoff matches will played in UAE, Sharjah and Karachi Stadium. Peshawar Zalmi who won the last PSL requested to Chairman to play three to four matches in Peshawar. Well this decision is also on pending. But it is sure that PSL 2018 will be played in Pakistan but we are talking with foreign players and also with our security officers. Pakistani security officers have given clearness to play even complete tournament in Pakistan. But in last season there were some foreign players who were not ready to play final match in Pakistan so Quetta Gladiators replaced some players.
