A formal announcement in this regard is to be made in the PSL’s logo-unveiling ceremony scheduled to be held at the Expo Centre here on Sunday.
According to reports, the change has come about since the PCB has finally been able to reach a consent with the organizers of the Masters Champions League over the issue of dates since the former also wanted to hold their event in the UAE at the same time.
Owing to the dispute with Masters League, the PCB were compelled to shift the league to Doha.
However, now when the PCB has had successful negotiations with the authorities of the Masters League, the PSL has been fially relocated to the UAE which has provided regular off-shore venues to Pakistan since the ghastly attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore in 2009.
It may be mentioned here that despite announcing Doha as the venue for PSL, the PCB remained on tenterhooks about its success due to lack of international standard infrastructure for the game and no practice grounds available for the teams which are essential for such mega events.
