All the six franchises of Pakistan Super League (PSL) are of the fact that bringing entire PSL to Pakistan will only ruin the beauty of the league as many foreign stars will not come to Pakistan for the whole tournament.
The concerns of the teams are valid as we have seen in the past four years that many big stars were reluctant to come to Pakistan. Teams suffered a lot because of this as their key players refused to come to Pakistan.
However, things are getting better as the whole squad of Karachi Kings & Peshawar Zalmi came to Karachi for the final stage of PSL 4.
Franchises will now meet chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsan Mani next week to put forward their reservations over the decision of bringing back PSL to home. In this meeting, some other issues are expected to be raised by the franchises including tax payment, bank guarantee etc.
PSL 5 is scheduled from February 20th, 2020 in Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Multan will host the event while the final of the mega event will be played at the historic Gadaffi Stadium, Lahore. While the drafts of the event will be held in November 2019.
