Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018 has commenced. With six teams participating, contrary to five earlier, the third edition of Pakistan’s franchise cricket promises to double the excitement. The most astonishing feature of PSL 2018 is Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s attempt to bring back cricket in their country. The playoffs will be hosted in Lahore, whereas Karachi International Stadium is scheduled to host the finale on March 25. As of now, we are into the fifth match of the tournament between Quetta Gladiators and Lahore Qalandars. Both sides are yet to get off the mark, and will be raring to go against each other in Dubai.

The live coverage of the fifth encounter of the tournament will be aired on DSports TV. Sarfraz Ahmed’s troops will be up against Brendon McCullum and co.

Recently former Pakistan player, Rameez Raja told TOI, “Pakistan Super League has been a success story from all angles. Every year the player profile keeps increasing and improving and money keeps pouring in. Making their debuts in PSL 3 and vying for attention will be Chris Lynn, Colin Ingram and Jofra Archer. In per-match ratio term Pakistan Super League is second only to Indian Premier League. As the ride takes us into year three, you will get to see a larger canvas of players, a new team making an appearance and potential greats trying to outdo the known performers.”
