The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced over the weekend that the PSL 4 matches taking place in Lahore will be moved to Karachi due to challenges faced in logistics.
The Pakistani airspace was completely shut down for several days after the tensions between Pakistan and India rose last week. With airports and airspace now opened, there is a huge influx of flights and people are already facing delays and other problems.
To avoid these problems, the cricket board felt it was necessary to move all of the PSL matches to Karachi.
The three Lahore matches, which were originally scheduled for March 9, 10 and 12, will now be held in Karachi with a revised schedule.
As soon as the news of PSL 4 matches in Lahore being moved surfaced, people who had already bought tickets were concerned about their ticket refunds.
Today PCB has reassured that ticket holders of Lahore-leg matches will get their refunds on the face value of tickets.
