Peshawar will miss PSL 9 clashes for what reason?. In the near future, cricket fans will get the chance to experience the exciting ninth edition of the Pakistan Super League, which is slated to commence in February 2024. Unfortunately, Peshawar will miss the event once again due to scheduling problems.

The construction of Hayatabad Cricket Stadium under the former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) regime has been going on for the past two years, but the project has not been completed as has been reported by Geo News sources.

The crucial task of installing floodlights at the Peshawar Stadium has not begun, meaning Peshawar will not be able to host matches in the PSL this year.

According to the sources, the stadium has cost billions of dollars to construct, but there is no sign of the stadium completing its construction.

There is a lot of excitement among cricket enthusiasts as they anticipate the chance to watch their favourite international and national cricketers competing in Peshawar.

In case you have forgotten, PCB wants to host the PSL 9 matches in four different venues across Pakistan – Karachi, Lahore, Multan and Rawalpindi.

The teams will gather on February 12 and take part in four days of practice sessions and matches during which they will observe each other’s performance.

Lahore Qalandars will be playing Islamabad United in the opening game of the event on February 17 in Lahore, where the defending champions will be face-to-face with the hosts. During the 18th of February, Multan Sultans will play against Karachi Kings in Multan.

In the meantime, Karachi Kings and Islamabad United are recommended to play the first game in Karachi on February 28 between both teams. It is scheduled that matches in Rawalpindi will begin on March 1, with United playing Quetta Gladiators on the same day. The event will also feature six double-header matches during the course of the weekend.

Karachi will host eleven matches, Lahore and Rawalpindi will host nine matches each, and Multan will host five matches.

As part of the tournament, three playoff matches will be held in Karachi, and the final will be held on March 17.

I would like to point out that the teams have finalized their squads for the upcoming season nine of the league.
