Adding more glitter to the league, Pakistan Cricket Board has introduced student discount of 30% on the original ticket prices for VIP, Premium and VVIP categories in Lahore and Rawalpindi. This is a unique strategy initiated by the Pakistan Cricket Board to increase spectator response, target youth to attract them to cricket and boost the revenue as well.
Where this new initiative of introducing student discount for increasing sales and spectators is interesting, the weather can possibly hinder the ongoing Pakistan Super League especially the matches to be held in Rawalpindi and Lahore. Rain is expected whole coming week in Rawalpindi and the next four days in Lahore. This will definitely make things a bit hectic for the organizers if refund requests are to be dealt with in case of rain. With seventeen more days left in the league’s completion, Multan Sultans is topping the charts currently which is a great achievement for the franchise and can be credited to its management, efforts in innovation and additional coaching staff for better results. With the other two teams in top three: Islamabad United and Karachi Kings, the next matches will be interesting to see how the PSL progresses further.
