PSL 2023 final rescheduled, now on 18th
17 March, 2023
LAHORE - After taking into consideration bad weather forecast over the coming days, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to hold the HBL PSL 8 final on Saturday (March 18) here at Gaddafi Stadium with Sunday and Monday to be treated as reserve days.
The final was scheduled earlier for Sunday (March 19). Najam Sethi, Chair of PCB Management Committee, said: “The HBL PSL 8 is our marquee event. All the teams aim and prepare the whole year to not only feature in the final but to lift the Supernova Trophy, while the passionate cricket fans also wait anxiously to see their favourite team being crowned as the champion. “As such, and on the basis of available information about bad weather forecast, it is a sensible and proactive approach that we use the off-day and play the final on Saturday (March 18), andutilise Sunday along with Monday as reserve days.

This will give us two reserve days in case the match cannot be completed or played on Saturday instead of the traditional one day. “We have spoken with the teams involved in the Play-offs, and they are not only aligned to our decision but also backed and supported it. “There will be no inconvenience to the cricket fans as tickets purchased for Sunday’s match will remain valid for Saturday’s rescheduled final,” Sethi added.
