Cricket enthusiasts, including all the folks at Yayvo Tickets, nationwide are excited due to the biggest sporting event in the history of our nation: HBL Pakistan Super League 2020.
HBL PSL is a significant milestone in the Pakistani cricket landscape since it marks the return of international cricket to Pakistan. HBL PSL was sanctioned by the Pakistan Cricket Board in September 2015 as a T20 series franchise. The HBL PSL is not an association of independently owned teams. Instead, it is a single entity in which each franchise is owned and controlled by investors. The teams consist of a mixture of national and international players.
The series take place each year between February and March. Each team has to play 10 matches in Double Round Robin Format, and the top four teams with the best records qualify for the semi-finals and final.
Due to security concerns raised by international players, the first season was held entirely in the United Arab Emirates. In 2017, PCB announced that the final match will take place in Lahore; which paved the way for the rebirth of international cricket in the country. HBL PSL 2018 took place in Dubai and Sharjah while the semifinals and finals were played in Lahore and Islamabad respectively. For the first time ever, the entire HBL PSL 2020 will be played in Pakistan. The matches will be divided amongst Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Multan stadiums.
