However, according to the PCB chief, Karachi will also get a few matches apart from Lahore in the 3rd edition of the lucrative Pakistan Super League. the news is a massive one for the residents of the city as the National Cricket Stadium will finally see some international cricket action once again.

Najam Sethi has done a brilliant job ever since he took over as the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board. An ICC World XI will be touring Pakistan in the month of September which will mark the end of the international ban in the country. The team consists of some big names from the world of cricket in the form of Faf du Plessis, Imran Tahir, Paul Collinwood, Darren Sammy, Grant Elliot, Luke Ronchi and a few more. Sethi has promised presidential level security for the visiting team during the tour.

Sethi also confirmed that the PCB will not tolerate any corrupt activities and the guilty will be severely punished. Sharjeel Khan who was found guilty of spot fixing in the PSL has been handed over a 5-year ban and Sethi used it as a warning for all other players.
