The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have announced the complete schedule of the upcoming season of their premier domestic T20 tournament – Pakistan Super League (PSL). The eighth edition of PSL will begin on February 13, with defending champions Lahore Qalandars taking on Multan Sultans in the opening fixture.

After the league stage matches, the competition will move to the playoffs starting on March 15, while the final is set to be hosted on March 19. All the games will be played across four venues – Multan, Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Lahore.

“There will be no question on the quality of cricket that will be played in over 34 days of action-packed cricket. I am hoping the PSL will once again live up to its expectations of unearthing and identifying future stars who will not only challenge the established household names in this edition but will go on to represent Pakistan,” said PCB chief Najam Sethi in a statement.

Further, the apex board has also permitted to increase the number of players per side to 20, allowing each franchise to pick two additional supplementary cricketers. Notably, the players will be picked in the Replacement Draft, scheduled for Tuesday (January 24).
