The eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final will be contested on Saturday, March 18, at the Gaddafi Stadium, with Sunday and Monday serving as reserve days, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
The final was originally slated to take place in Lahore on Sunday, March 19.
The PCB stated in a statement that all PSL franchises were on board and that the decision was made given the poor weather prediction.
“The PSL 8 is our marquee event. All the teams aim and prepare the whole year to not only feature in the final but to lift the Supernova Trophy. At the same time, passionate cricket fans also wait anxiously to see their favorite team being crowned as the champion,” said Najam Sethi.
“As such, and based on available information about the bad weather forecast, it is a sensible and proactive approach that we use the off-day and play the final on Saturday, and utilize Sunday along with Monday as reserve days. This will give us two reserve days if the match cannot be completed or played on Saturday instead of the traditional one day,” he added.
