The Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Najam Sethi is scheduled to meet the Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah to discuss the preparations for hosting the matches of the Pakistan Super League in Karachi this time around.

The lynchpin of Pakistan’s Board took to Twitter to appeal for good wishes and support in front of the eager masses of Pakistan, who now expect matches to be held in the iconic National Stadium in Karachi after Gaddafi Stadium at Lahore.

The PCB Chief was the prime mover for bringing back international cricket in Pakistan as he was determined to host the finals of the Pakistan Super League at Lahore. Satisfied with the security measures, ICC decided to send the World XI side to Lahore which meant that Pakistan hosted a prominent series after 8 long years post the terror attacks on the Sri Lankan cricketers back in 2009.

Najam Sethi is now determined to bring back the game in iconic places such as Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Multan, which would mean a full restoration of cricket in Pakistan. As a result, Sethi tweeted, “I am meeting Sindh CM tomorrow to start preparations for PSL matches in Karachi. Wish me luck!”

Here’s the post:

The meeting is scheduled to be held at the CM House at 11 am tomorrow and would only include sports minister and other officials of the provincial government. If sources privy to the matter is to be believed in, Murad Ali Shah has assured the PCB chairman of full cooperation for hosting a few PSL matches in Karachi.

“This is a historic moment,” he said of the upcoming T20I in Lahore between the two sides, as Pakistan beat Sri Lanka in the second ODI to give fans, even more, to celebrate about. “Great win! Great news too about the Lahore T20. Hope the fans are smiling 🙂 Pakistan Zindabad,” Sethi tweeted.
