Sethi said the tickets would go on sale from tomorrow, both online as well as at outlets. “Details [regarding tickets] will be available tomorrow,” he said.
Hoping for the revival of cricket in Pakistan after the successful staging of PSL final, Sethi said, “Hopefully, after the success of PSL, we will send a message to the world and cricket will come back to its home. Cricket is the heartbeat of the Pakistani nation.”
“We have to wait until March 3 to know which foreign players will travel to Lahore, as we still do not know which two teams will qualify,” he said speaking about the participation of foreign players in the final.
“We have already spoken to all foreign players. I will go back to Dubai to speak [about the final]. Inshallah, foreign players will come,” he added.
The Government of Punjab today gave green signal to PCB for holding the final of PSL in Lahore.
