Pakistan Super League final will be held in Lahore, says Sanaullah

Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah on Monday said the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final will be held in Lahore as scheduled, reported DawnNews.

"The announcement to hold the final in Lahore will be made shortly by the Chief Minister Secretariat," said the law minister.

He added that preparations have been made to hold the final at the Gaddafi Stadium and final preparations are ongoing at the venue.

The decision was made in a high-level huddle of Provincial Cabinet Committee held earlier today.
PSL Chairman Najam Sethi said the decision has been announced by the Punjab government and added that the tickets for the final will go on sale from Tuesday.

"Tickets will go on sale from tomorrow and will be available online and through outlets."

"We have to wait till March 3 to know which foreign players will travel to Lahore, as we still do not know which two teams will qualify," said the PSL chairman while referring to attendance of foreign players.

He also praised the Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif for the decision and said all provincial and federal authorities, including security forces, are "on the same page".

"This is a time for the people to be united and resilient," said Sethi adding that the decision has shown the country will not be held hostage by terrorism.

Sethi also said the wish of the people had been conveyed to the government and the government in turn had ensured proper arrangements for the PSL final.

Due to security concerns following a recent wave of terror attacks in different parts of the country, including Lahore, there had been speculation that the PSL final may not be held in Pakistan after all.

Events and activities have been banned in areas surrounding Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium until March 5.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shaharyar Khan earlier said despite recent terror attacks in Lahore, the PCB was eager to hold the high-profile PSL final in the provincial capital. However, he had categorically stated that the final decision in this regard would rest with the government.
