PSL 2018: Two matches to be played today

PSL 2018: Kumar Sangakkara stars as Multan Sultans beat Peshawar Zalmi in opener

With more PSL games scheduled to be played in Pakistan towards the end of the tournament, there is a likelihood that Pakistan fans in Lahore and Karachi will be treated to some top-quality cricket in their home grounds with some of the world's best performing in front of appreciative and eager Pakistani cricket-lovers.

The league will span across Dubai and Sharjah before shifting to Pakistan for the final leg.

Ibtisam Sheikh chipped in with three wickets as Islamabad managed just 149 for nine in their allotted overs.

While Islamabad United will be playing their first match of the season, Peshawar come into the game having lost their first match by seven wickets to newcomers Multan Sultans.

Speaking to Geo News, said that celebrities belonging to the Pakistani entertainment industry who were associated with different PSL teams as brand ambassadors shared a unique friendship among themselves and often teased each other for fun.

For Peshawar Zalmi, all eyes will be on Wahab Riaz, Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal, Chris Jordan, Shakib Al Hasan, Dwayne Bravo, and Darren Sammy.

Pakistan has been deprived of global cricket for nearly a decade since a terrorist attack on a Sri Lankan team bus in 2008, barring a handful of matches during that period. "He is also a great fielder, who can bowl off-spin as well".

The "new kid on the block" is the sixth franchise in PSL belonging to the city of Sufis, known as Multan Sultans. For Multan Sultans, the key players would be Darren Bravo, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan, Umar Gul, Sohail Tanvir, Kumar Sangkarra, Thisara Perera, and Keiron Pollard. Of course, Imran Tahir could well become the darling of the crowds but then he will need to take some important wickets for his side to move them up the points table when the action begins on 22 February in Dubai.

The fixture will be streamed online on the PSL-T20 Official website. However the bigger prize for the PCB and one they are eyeing is to see that the PSL creates the path for the return of global cricket to Pakistan.
