The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is one of the most highly-anticipated cricket tournaments in the region, and fans eagerly await the venues where matches will be held. However, it has recently been announced that Quetta will no longer be a venue for the upcoming PSL 8. This decision was made due to extreme weather conditions in the city, which would make it impossible to organize matches at the Bugti Stadium.
While this news may come as a disappointment to Quetta fans, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is looking to the future. They hope to hold warm-up or exhibition matches in Quetta in the future, and are planning to make the city a permanent venue for the PSL starting from next year. The PCB is confident that they can organize PSL 9 matches in Quetta in a professional and effective manner, and preparations for this will begin in the early stages.
In addition to Quetta, the PCB is also planning to hold some of the PSL 9 matches in Peshawar next year. This means that the PSL 2023 will be held at four venues: Lahore, Karachi, Multan, and Rawalpindi.
While Quetta will not be a part of the venues for the PSL 2023, the PCB is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all players, officials, and fans. They are confident that Quetta will be able to host matches in the future and are already making preparations for this to happen in the next PSL season.
In conclusion, the PSL 8 will not be held in Quetta due to extreme weather conditions, however, the PCB is working towards organizing exhibition matches and making Quetta a permanent venue for the PSL in the future. They are also planning to hold some of the PSL 9 matches in Peshawar next year. While this may be disappointing for fans and stakeholders in Quetta, the PCB is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
