Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium will host knock-out stage of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 5 in mid-November.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday announced dates for a qualifier, two eliminators, and the grand finale. According to the announced schedule, the qualifier between Multan Sultans and Karachi Kings will be played on November 14 followed by Eliminator 1 between Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi.
Eliminator 2 will be played on November 15 whereas the stage for PSL 5 final will be set-up on November 17.
All the four matches will be played behind closed doors and in a bio-secured bubble, though the situation will be closely monitored and will be reviewed in October.
It must be noted here that Zimbabwe is also scheduled to tour Pakistan in the third week of October to play three T20Is and as many ODIs.
PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan: “The PCB was always keen and committed to hosting the remaining four matches as it believed an event of the magnitude of the HBL Pakistan Super League deserved a winner. We saw the excitement and buzz in the lead up to the competition earlier this year and look forward to promotional activations that will engage the fans once again.
“The hosting of the remaining four HBL Pakistan Super League 2020 matches also endorses Pakistan’s resilience in overcoming difficulties and challenges no matter what the nature. PCB is planning to hold its 2020-21 domestic season, which will include a number of age-group, men and women competitions, as well as home international series against Zimbabwe and South Africa.
