The number of matches has been increased from 16 to 24 in the second season, with the final to be held in Lahore in Pakistan.

The 2016 Pakistan Super League match between Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars managed to grip more eyeballs than the India-Pakistan quarterfinal match in the 2011 World Cup.

Such an eye-opening stat was provided by PSL brand ambassador and former Pakistan international Rameez Raja at the opening of the ‘Spirit Trophy‘, designed by Swarovski for the second edition of the tournament which gets under way on Thursday, February 9.

And, if the numbers are anything to go by, then the PSL is sure to set new standards in the years to come. But for now five teams – defending champions Islamabad United, runners-up Quetta Gladiators, Karachi Kings, Peshawar Zalmi and Lahore Qalandars  are ready to create a sandstorm in the desert.

Fans can also imagine some high-octane and ‘boombastic’ music from Jamaican reggae star Shaggy and Pakistan’s Ali Zafar during the opening ceremony at the Dubai Cricket Stadium prior to the opening match between Misbah-ul-Haq’s Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi.

The Peshawar side ended last season under Shahid Afridi but will be led by Darren Sammy this season. There could be a trick or two here as the West Indian recently led his country to the T20 World Cup. Lahore Qalandars, who finished last in the table in 2016, have got Brendon McCullum to lead them, while Jason Roy and Sunil Narine add mass to the team.

Kumar Sangakkara will lead Karachi Kings who also claim the big-hitting Chris Gayle. The number of matches has been increased from 16 to 24 in the second season, with the final to be held in Lahore in Pakistan.

Raja has not doubt that the tournament will be successful. Raja is confident the tournament will grow in importance.

There’s a lot to look forward to for PSL 2 as there are new players that have come in and a lot of arrangements that have gone behind the scenes.
