Lahore and Rawalpindi to Host More PSL 2025 Matches Than Karachi

Karachi has been allocated five matches.

Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2025 season 10, Lahore and Rawalpindi have been designated to host a higher number of matches compared to Karachi, according to reports from local media.

Karachi has been allocated five matches in the draft schedule for PSL 2025, a decrease from the previous season due to low turnout. Meanwhile, Lahore is set to host a maximum of 10 matches, with Rawalpindi following closely with eight matches. Multan will also host five matches during the event.

The playoffs for PSL 2025 are scheduled to take place at a neutral venue, likely to be in England, adding an international dimension to the tournament's climax.

In the previous season, Karachi had hosted 11 matches, including key fixtures such as the Qualifier, two Eliminators, and the final.

Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore and Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi each hosted nine matches, while Multan welcomed five matches in its capacity as the city of saints.

Preparations for the PSL 2025 are already underway, with all teams scheduled to report on April 7, 2025, for training sessions running until April 11. The opening match between Islamabad United and Lahore Qalandars is set to kick off in Rawalpindi on April 12, followed by two matches the next day in Rawalpindi and Karachi.

The PSL Governing Council is expected to convene towards the end of May 2024 to approve the window for the next season and discuss potential changes to playing conditions.

Among the proposals under consideration are innovative concepts such as the submission of two separate team sheets at the toss and the introduction of a Power Surge, akin to Australia’s Big Bash League.

These initiatives aim to enhance the excitement and competitiveness of PSL matches from the upcoming edition onwards.
