Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsan Mani has said that he is grateful to the provincial government and civil administration to make a quick preparation for hosting more Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches in Karachi.
Ehsan Mani visited Karachi National Stadium along with Cricket Board officials and reviewed preparations for PSL matches.
Talking to media representatives on the occasion, Chairman PCB Ehsan Mani said that I am very happy to hold a meeting in PSL Karachi. He said that I am grateful to Sindh government and Karachi administration to prepare for hosting more three matches at the last moments.
Ehsan Mani said that Chief Minister Sindh, and the municipalities have worked hard to hold PSL matches and Karachities should be proud of them. In response to a question, he said that security experts of other countries are also coming to Pakistan for a security check during PSL matches.
Continuing his words, Chairman PCB said that the security delegation of other countries has come to Pakistan included Australia and Bangladesh. He also informed that the purpose of foreign security experts to visit Pakistan is to review the security situation here and to see what steps we can further take here.
Apart from this, he said that many foreign guests, including the International Executive Council (ICC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) David Richardson, are also interested in visiting Pakistan.
In response to a question, Chairman PCB Ehsan Mani said that after the holding of PSL Pakistan, especially in Karachi, the impression regarding security in the mind of foreigners will end.
In response to the question asked by ICC President Shashank Manohar, Ehsan Mani said that Shushkak Manohar would not be able to visit Pakistan due to his personal engagement. When asked if Prime Minister Imran Khan would come to the PSL to see the match, he said, ‘I can not say anything’.
Remember that PSL last 8 matches are being held in Pakistan, Karachi and Lahore were selected for 5 and 3 matches respectively.
However, due to the closure of air boundaries after the tensions between Pakistan and India, three matches that were supposed to be in Lahore were also shifted to Karachi.
