HBL PSL 2019 Schedule and Time
The fourth season of the Pakistan Super League can be expected to be held in February-March 2019 but the PSL schedule is yet to be released.
Once the Pakistan Cricket Board releases the PSL fixtures for the 2019 season, we will update you with the same and you can follow your favourite teams and their matches below.
What’s interesting to note is that the PCB has said that there could be a possibility of more matches to be played in Pakistan in season four. In PSL 2018, there were three games that were played including the final in Karachi and two other playoffs in Lahore.
The third season of the PSL was won by Islamabad United who defeated the Peshawar Zalmi in the final of the competition in Karachi. It would be interesting to see where would the final of the PSL 2019 be held.
The PSL 2018 had seen six teams fight it out for the top honours, with each of the sides featuring in a two-leg round-robin league. Every team played 10 games and at the end of the league stage of the competition, the top four sides played in a playoff.
The number of teams in the PSL 2019 are expected to remain the same which means the number of matches in the PSL schedule will also remain pegged at 34. More information on the PSL fixtures will be released at a later date.
Last season was the first ever edition featuring six PSL teams instead of five and each side will play each other twice. That accounted for a total of 30 matches during the league stage of the competition. This was followed by the playoffs. The top two sides in the group stages of the competition clashed first up, with the winner qualifying for the final. This was then followed by an Eliminator, with the losing team bowing out and the winning side taking on the losing team from the first Qualifier. This third match, also an Eliminator, will be played followed by the final.
There was a good demand for PSL tickets through the league stages of the tournament before it touched crescendo when the final came to Lahore. The complete PSL fixtures with time are placed below for the 2018 edition.
