The 8 matches of Pakistan Super League 2017 will be played in Sharjah Cricket ground from Feb 15, 2017 to Feb 20, 2017. Later two play off matches will be played on Feb 28 and March 1 2017.
The Pakistan Super League Matches in Sharjah Cricket Stadium will be played among 5 teams. The teams included Peshawar Zalmi, Quetta Gladiators, Islamabad United, Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings will play matches in the Sharjah leg of PSL 2017. Pakistan super League official website announced PSL Schedule. After 8 matches in Sharjah, rest of the matches of Pakistan super League 2017 will be played again in Dubai International Cricket with possibly final of PSL will be played in Lahore.
The defending champions got their campaign off to a winning start against Peshawar but were found wanting against Lahore Qalandars. With an ageing squad - most players are above 30 - which includes captain Misbah-ul-Haq (42), Brad Haddin (39), Shane Watson (35), Saeed Ajmal (39), Mohammad Sami (35), Samuel Badree (35) and Dwayne Smith (33) one could easily write them off. But, as they say, do it at your own peril.
Misbah produced a whirlwind 36-ball 61 and Smith and Haddin are yet capable of taking the rival bowlers to the cleaners. But the loss of hard-hitting left-handed opener Sharjeel Khan, who has been suspended for alleged spot-fixing, and a weak bowling department has left Misbah with very few options.
Mohammad Irfan who is also under investigation in the corruption scandal that hit the PSL has only compounded his woes.
On the other hand his counterpart Sarfraz Ahmed has no such headache. His bowlers performed exceedingly well in stopping Lahore Qalandars from overhauling their total of 136. In the next match Rilee Rossouw and Sarfraz pulled their team out off a hole at 30 for 3 against Karachi Kings to surpass their total of 159 with five balls to spare.
It shows that the team is well balanced and would like lay their hands on the trophy which they had come so close to doing so last year.
Like Quetta, Peshawar Zalmi have also hit good form after their defeat to Islamabad. Victories over Karachi Kings and Lahore Qalandars have propelled them to the top of the PSL standings.
Early days though, but with a lively Darren Sammy, who took a splendid catch in the slip cordon, leading and with the return of Mohammad Hafeez as a bowler and Eoin Morgan hitting top form with the bat, Peshawar look the side to beat.
Tickets of Pakistan super league 2017 Sharjah matches are on sale. Ticket Price ranges from AED 20 to AED 650 depending upon the different stands in the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Ticket can be purchased from Sharjah Cricket Stadium, PSL Website, Karachi Darbar and AJ Sports Shop.
