Fans can find all the details here and learn how to book tickets for the matches. Additionally, information on live streaming is available for fans who cannot attend the stadium, allowing them to watch their favorite teams in action.


Moreover, this season features squads from all six franchises, including some new and exciting players. Here’s everything you need to know about PSL 9.

Venues of PSL 9

PSL 9 will captivate fans across four iconic cities of Pakistan, just like the previous two seasons, including Karachi, Lahore, Multan, and Rawalpindi, which will host 34 exhilarating matches.

1. National Bank Stadium, Karachi

The National Bank Cricket Arena will host most of the matches of PSL 9, including 11 matches, the qualifier, two eliminators, and the most important mega-final of the league.

This stadium has a history of hosting thrilling and exciting matches of the PSL in past seasons. For instance, Islamabad United lifted the title for the second time in the 2018 season of the PSL, and South African batter Cameron Delport smashed a fast hundred in 2019 while playing for Islamabad United against Lahore Qalandars. Now, it promises to see another thrilling match and more firepower in the stadium in the upcoming season.

2. Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore

One of Pakistan’s most beautiful cricket stadiums, Gaddafi Stadium, will host 9 matches of PSL 9, including the opening match of the league, and the home team, Lahore Qalandars, will kick off the tournament in the opening match at this iconic stadium.

The stadium witnessed the best experience for fans during the 2020 season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Ben Dunk from Australia, who played for the Lahore Qalandars, hit 12 sixes and smashed 99 runs, single-handedly winning the game for the team against Karachi Kings. Additionally, Lahore Qalandars clinched the PSL title consecutively in the last two seasons, both times on their home ground. Once again, the Qalandars will kick off their campaign as the defending champions.

3. Pindi Cricket Stadium, Rawalpindi

In addition to Lahore, the Pindi Stadium will also host nine matches during the upcoming ninth edition of the PSL. The two-time champions, Islamabad United, will play five games at their home ground.

The Pindi Stadium is renowned for its electrifying boundaries, with many sixes hit out of the park in past seasons. It also has a history of high-scoring matches, and the highest total in PSL history was achieved here last season by the Multan Sultans when they scored 262 runs against Quetta Gladiators.

Additionally, the spotlight on that innings was Sultan’s batter Usman Khan, who also smashed the fastest century in PSL history in just 36 balls. It is expected that fans will witness even more explosive performances in the upcoming season.

4. Multan Cricket Stadium, Multan

Just like the previous season of the PSL, Multan Stadium will again host only five matches of this year’s PSL, and the home side Multan Sultans, will play all five matches on their home ground.

This iconic stadium has hosted many thrilling matches of the PSL in past seasons. One of the best moments was when South African star batter Rile Rossouw played for Multan Sultans and smashed the fastest 100 in just 43 balls during the 5th edition of the PSL against Quetta Gladiators.

Full Schedule

The opening match of PSL is scheduled to start on February 17th, featuring the defending champions, Lahore Qalandars, and the former two-time champions, Islamabad United, in Lahore.

The most exciting clash of PSL between Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings is scheduled for 24 February and 9 March. The game on 24 February will be held at Gaddafi Stadium, and the match on 9 March will take place at National Bank Stadium.
