Pakistan Super League PSL 2020 Overview:

Pakistan Super League (PSL) was first launched in 2015. The inaugural season was played in 2016 during a one month period between February and March. The league was promoted as a platform by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to unearth the young and raw talent in the country.

The inaugural PSL season played in 2016 comprised of five franchises and was later expanded to a six-team tournament in 2018. While the first PSL edition was entirely staged in UAE due to security reasons in Pakistan, the final of the second PSL was played at Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore. Ever since 2016, the league has been a great hit for cricket in Pakistan. After losing out on a majority of cricket at home, PSL came across as a major boost for cricket in Pakistan.

In 2020, for the first time, PSL will be played entirely in Pakistan. It is already a great achievement for PCB in its attempt to revive the sport in the country.

Ahead of the sixth edition in 2020, here’s a detailed look at Pakistan Super League PSL 2020 Schedules and fixtures, Venues, Match Timings, and Broadcast details:
