The third edition of Pakistan’s premier Twenty20 (T20) tournament, the Pakistan Super League (PSL), will kick off from 22 February in Dubai. As is the norm for all such high-profile tournaments in today’s commercially driven world of cricket, the PSL will start off with a glamour-filled opening ceremony before the teams get down to business in a series of games to be held in Dubai and Sharjah. The tournament will then move to Pakistan where the last three games — two eliminators and the final — are to be played in Lahore and Karachi respectively.
