ISLAMABAD: PTI Chairman and former captain Imran Khan on Thursday reiterated his opposition to the final of Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Lahore, saying that there was no use of playing the match under curfew.

“If the PSL is being conducted to revive international cricket in Pakistan, this is simply foolish,” Khan said while addressing a gathering in the federal capital.

““International cricket will be revived automatically once security situation normalizes in the country,” he maintained.

Khan warned that if any mishap happened during the final, there would be no international cricket in Pakistan.

The PTI chief was the view that stadiums would have been packed with fans if PCB had conducted the league in Pakistan.

He said that PCB must stop holding the PSL in Dubai.

The PSL's final will be played at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on March 5. Quetta Gladiators have already qualified for the final while the second finalist will be decided after the third playoff between Peshawar Zalmi and Karachi Kings. - SAMAA
