It all started off in 2015. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), in an attempt, to create a tournament, to act as a training ground for the raw talents emerging from the country by giving them a chance to play with international cricketers, launched the T20 tournament, the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The first edition of the tournament was played in 2016 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and had just five teams. In 2017, a part of the tournament was played in Pakistan, getting the local fans, a chance to see their favourite teams. And in 2018, another team, the Multan Sultans was added and the league now had a total of six participating franchises.
With another team getting added to the roster, the number of matches increased and a good number of foreign players also began participating in the tournament. From then on, there has been no looking back. The league has grown in all aspects and more and more foreign players have started participating in it. Getting a taste of everything over the last 4 seasons, starting in 2016, the PSL is all set to enter its fifth season in 2020.
The opening match of this season will be played between Islamabad United and the defending champions, Quetta Gladiators. This edition of the tournament is going to be really special, owing to the fact that for the first time, the entire set of 34 matches will be hosted in Pakistan itself. So, the fans will be in for an entertainment extravaganza when they will see their favourite players play the entire tournament in their own cities, namely Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Multan, starting from February 20.
