    We were told that the PSL has been limited to Lahore only because of political agenda, while safer cities like Karachi etc. have been ignored.

    The conspiracy theorists always end up licking their wounds, but unfortunately they don't seem capable of learning.

    Can't disagree but you can't blame fans for being disappointed that matches were only held in Lahore. Couldve played srilanka in Karachi or played a match in world xi series in Karachi.

    One step at a time, PCB are not in a position to rush things. After a few games in Karachi, there will be murmurs that what about Multan, Faisalabad and Rawalpindi. They will also get to host matches in the future, but we need to take things slowly and keep our agendas at bay.

    Though I don't argue, but mark my words PSL Final will not held in Karachi. This is card played well by Sethi but in the end you will see he will be telling us reason of not holding in Karachi. He possess good political mind

    I am a karachiite and I saw this tweet posted by Najam Sethi, basically the Karachi stadium has been such a mess that it has to go through immense rennovations and a rate of knots to even get the place ready in time in 3 months is a challenge.

    Apparently roofs are falling, and have broken down, drainage system is a mess leaking water etc. Even if this place is ready for International standards in 3 months, I'm not expecting much from the facilities that are there.

    The layoff of 8 years has made the place pretty barren and far off the standards modern stadiums are at now.

    Yup this is what even Rashid Latiff was saying on TV, hes saying the amount of renovation work karachi and Islamabad cricket stadium need you may as well build new stadiums with the money you are going to spend on them.

    Apparently the pitch at karachi is so dead and low and PCB is planning to import a pitch from over seas at the cost of $1 million. Karachi stadium needs to drainage at the ground itself, new player changing rooms and shower facilities, needs a gym in the stadium etc.

    My best advice to PCB is get into a partnership with bahrain town karachi and spend money with them on their stadium making sure its a fine international stadium karachi can be proud of.
