    LAHORE – The PCB & owners of the all the 6 franchises of the PSL will hold an emergency meeting to ponder over the relocation of matches from Lahore & Rawalpindi to Karachi as the interim Punjab government has sent a whooping bill of Rs450 for providing security.

    The PSL- 8 matches are scheduled to be played in Lahore & Rawalpindi from Feb 26 & March 1 respectively. Both cities will host nine matches each. Sources said the provincial government had demanded Rs450 million in addition to Rs50 mn the PCB(Pakistan Cricket Board) has already paid for the security purpose.

    Matches in Multan have already been completed while the Karachi-leg of the largest domestic tournament will end on Sunday(Feb-26).
    The PCB(Pakistan Cricket Board) has picked Lahore as venue for the PSL final, one qualifier & 2 eliminators. The shifting of the matches from the provincial capital & Rawalpindi would create problem for the fans who have already bought tickets for the matches.

    The cricket board is of the view that previously the security expenses were borne by the provincial governments. In contrast with the Punjab government’s bill, the Sindh government had asked for Rs30mn for providing security to matches in Karachi.
