Pakistan Super League (PSL)

All the cricket fans in Pakistan are super excited on the launch of Pakistan Super League or PSL finally. In the past years, watching the matches of Indian Premier League (IPL), Pakistanis have always wondered with dreamy eyes that whether there would be a day where Pakistan will also launch its own cricket league. By the grace of God and hard work of Mr. Najam Sethi, along with others, Pakistan is finally experiencing the big day to welcome PSL.

With total of 69 local and 29 foreign stars, PSL will rock the floor with 5 major teams from 5th February to 23rd February in the stadium of Sharjah and Dubai. All the Pakistanis, who are currently in UAE, are too delighted and excited with PSL as they will get a chance to watch all the matches live. On the other hand, Pakistanis still believe that by next year, PSL matches would be played in the grounds of Pakistan.

The teams in PSL are sold for a total of $93 million to ARY media group (Karachi Kings), Qatar Oil (Lahore Qalandars), UAE Capital Venture (Islamabad United), Haier (Peshawar Zalmi) and Omar Associates (Quetta Gladiators) for 10 years, with $200,000 salaries for top-tier players and relatively handsome pays for mid-tier and emerging talent as well. The winning side, meanwhile, will bring home $1 million. Not to forget that the legendary and iconic cricketers, such as, Wasim Akhtar and Ramiz Raja are the brand ambassadors of PSL. The new era of good cricket is beginning for Pakistan.
