KARACHI, Dec 24 (APP): The infrastructure development of the
National Stadium Karachi (NSK) would be completed by February 15
for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final scheduled for March 25.
This was stated by the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket
Board (PCB) Najam Sethi, while talking to reporters at the NSK on
Sunday.
He said that during the visit to Karachi he held meetings
with important personalities of the Government of Sindh and
discussed various issues including the security arrangements.
Najam Sethi said that with regard to security, foreign
experts would also be invited for briefing.
He stated that Government of Sindh was fully cooperating
with the PCB.
He stated that peaceful holding of the PSL final here would
also send the message that Karachi is a peaceful city and a fit
venue for the game of cricket.
Najam Sethi said that during his visit to Karachi he also
met with the sponsors and urged them to support the franchises.
He was of the view that there was also a `plan B’ and that
for any reason if it is not possible to hold the PSL Three Final
in Karachi then it would be organized in Lahore.
Najam Sethi said that cricket that is played between
Pakistan and India is the best game and it is our right to play
with India and we will fight for that as it is a matter of
dollars 100 million to 150 million and it was not proper to give
this up.
He said that there is an agreement with India and that it
should be implemented.
With regard to recent T-10 league played in Dubai, the stand
of the PCB is very clear. We had a profit of dollars 400,000 from
the T-10.
