Finally! Pakistan witnessed the final match of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2017 in Lahore, proving to the world that nothing and no one can take cricket out of our country.
PCB successfully conducted PSL Final at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore, a declaration that Pakistan is ready to bring back international cricket. It has been nearly eight years since Pakistan has enjoyed a mega cricket event in the country.
It was previously decided that the final of PSL second season will be played in Lahore but the recent terrorist attacks, killing more than 100 people, gave birth to security challenges. Despite the foreign players pulled out of the teams (except the members of Peshawar Zalmi), PSL final concluded with much zeal and love from the citizens.
PSL final preparations were in full swing from more than a week, where measures were taken to ensure the security of fans and cricketers as well. DIG Operations, Haider Ashraf last week shared the security plan for the stadium and later that week City Traffic Police Lahore revealed the traffic plan for people, to avoid any inconvenience on the big day.
CM Punjab Shehbaz Sharif also kept an eye on all the arrangements to make sure everything was up to the mark. The successful conclusion to Pakistan Super League looks promising to revive international cricket in Pakistan. Here are some highlights of the final match:
