According to media reports, the PCB is planning to relocate the PSL 8 matches from Lahore and Rawalpindi to Karachi because the Punjab government sought a hefty fee for event management.
The eighth season of the Pakistan Super League was originally scheduled to take place in four cities: Karachi, Multan, Rawalpindi, and Lahore.
The Punjab leg of the league is yet to begin, despite the fact that five matches have already been played at the Multan Cricket Stadium. But, supporters in Rawalpindi and Lahore are likely to miss out on the action since the PCB may relocate the remaining matches from Punjab towns to Karachi.

The decision is expected to be made in light of the high cost of staging the league in Punjab as the government has demanded Rs. 50 crore for the organization of the matches. According to the reports, the PCB has already paid 5 crore rupees in terms of food expenses but the Punjab government has also asked for the immediate payment of the remaining 45 crore rupees for security and lighting.
The massive amount will be deducted from the profits of the franchises due to which the PCB has called an urgent meeting with the franchises. It is expected that the PCB and franchises will unanimously decide to move the remaining matches to Karachi, in order to save the amount demanded by the Punjab government.
