In an interview with Cricket Pakistan, Ramiz Raja said, “There is no doubt that this year’s event has been a great success. Because, we have seen great spectators in every match, both in Lahore and Karachi. I have never in my professional life seen such an extraordinary, enthusiastic, thrilling, cricket-loving spectator. Especially in Lahore.
Since then, Ramiz has talked about how much the current event has enriched the PCB financially. Each franchise received 90 crore Pakistani rupees. No PSL franchise has received so much money before and this money went into the pockets of the franchisees before the first ball of the tournament was rolled on the field.
Not only Lahore or Karachi, but many more cities will be hosting PSL from next season, Ramiz said. Next year we will also host matches in Multan and Peshawar. Only then will the world see the magic of real PSL. Hopefully, we will be able to host PSL games on the home ground of every franchise to garner the support of more new fans.
The seventh edition of PSL has been held in Lahore and Karachi. The Lahore Calendars clinched the PSL title by defeating Multan Sultans by 42 runs in the final match at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The team had reached the final once before, but lost to Seba Karachi Kings, Lahore, reached the final for the second time and finally got a taste of the title.
