Pakistan Super League broke all the records in Pakistan as far as viewership was concerned. It was learned that one of the matches earlier this year in February was watched by whopping 100 million people in Pakistan. Isn’t it remarkable?
Following PSL’s epic and great success in the first edition, Najam Sethi and the governing body are not going to take the success for granted. Instead they have already started to plan for Pakistan Super League Edition 2 that is expectedly going to start next year in February. The first edition of the PSL was won by Islamabad United under the leadership of current test captain of Pakistan, Misbah-ul-Haq.
For the perusal of successful Pakistan Super League Edition 2, Najam Sethi along with other members from the governing body visited UAE to get in touch with the officials. The notion was to get the point across about the overall planning, scheduling and venues. There won’t be any hiccups this time around as there won’t be any other league that will be taking place in February next year.
It has also been learned that PCB is already in contact with top International Cricketers for Pakistan Super League Edition 2. According to a top PSL official, the PCB is in contact and looking to rope in 2 superstars, former New Zealand Skipper, Brendon McCullum, and former left-arm Aussie pacer, Mitchell Johnson, who are expected to feature in the second edition of PSL tournament next year.
Among top International Cricketers, it was observed that David Warner and AB de Villiers were also contacted but due to their International commitment during that course of the time, it will be difficult for them to make it to the tournament. The first edition was a great success with the likes of Chris Gayle, Kevin Pietersen, Kumar Sangakkara and so many other big names that rocked the PSL tournament along with Pakistani Cricketers.
