The announcement comes after the cricket board and the interim government of Punjab reached a consensus on a financial dispute regarding the cost of the security arrangements.
Earlier, the PCB had decided to move the PSL matches from Lahore and Rawalpindi to Karachi after following a deadlock with the caretaker setup on the same issue.
The dispute concerned the method of splitting the cost of security arrangements for PSL in three cities, i.e., Multan, Lahore and Rawalpindi.
The interim government had demanded the PCB pay the full cost of Rs450 million, but the cricket board refused to comply, insisting that it had a deal to pay only rs50 million as part of catering cost, with the previous Punjab government that was dissolved in January 2023.
