LAHORE: For the first time in two-year history, the HBL PSL arrives Pakistan as Peshawar Zalmi clashes times finalist Quetta Gladiators in the final game of the mega event.
The final will be played at The Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore on Sunday, March 5, scheduled to start at 20:00 local time. 16:00 GMT.
Before the game, a mega closing ceremony will take place at 6pm.
The security of Lahore has been on super alert with five-tier security for the teams and management.
A makeshift hospital facility has also been built within the hockey stadium adjacent to the cricket stadium in case of emergency.
Speaking of the finalist sides, Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta have faced each other in the first playoff of the PSL 2017, where Gladiators emerged as victorious after a nerve-breaking, nail-biting thriller.
Before this game, the two sides each other twice in the league round and won one match each.
A sad news for Peshawar Zalmi and the team as their star player and the heartthrob Shahid Khan Afridi has been ruled out of PSL final with his palm injury.
He got the wound while trying to catch a super shot by Karachi Kings batsman K. Pollard. With 9 stitches on the wound, Afridi has been advised to take a week off from the cricket.
On the other hand, Quetta will chose its foreign players from the news pool of available players after his overseas players refused to travel to Lahore.
