The Pakistan Super League will commence its ninth season in 2024, with the official name changed to HBL PSL 9 due to sponsorship considerations. Six teams compete in the league, launched in 2015 by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), using a format that combines a double round-robin with a page playoff. The event is set to take place in four different locations throughout Pakistan from February 17th to March 18th, 2024.

Due to the general election in Pakistan in 2024, PCB wanted to expand the league by two teams and relocate the event to the UAE. However, the franchise owners were against this. Arbab Niaz Stadium in Peshawar was also considered a potential match venue. Unfortunately, security concerns rendered it useless. As a result, Lahore, Multan, Karachi, and Rawalpindi were chosen as the venues for the league. The PCB announced Venues and fixtures on January 12, 2024.

The Pakistan Super League (PSL) is the pinnacle of professional Twenty20 cricket in Pakistan, showcasing a dazzling amalgamation of local and international cricketing talent. Established in 2015, the league has rapidly ascended to become one of the most anticipated events in the cricketing calendar, capturing the hearts of fans worldwide.

Comprising six franchises, namely Islamabad United, Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars, Multan Sultans, Peshawar Zalmi, and Quetta Gladiators, the PSL transforms Pakistan’s cricketing landscape into a vibrant tapestry of competition, camaraderie, and spectacle. The league not only offers a platform for established cricket stars but also serves as a breeding ground for emerging talents, contributing significantly to developing and promoting the sport within the country.

With its riveting format, the PSL annually enthralls cricket enthusiasts through intense matches, showcasing electrifying performances, nail-biting encounters, and unforgettable moments. Beyond the boundary ropes, the league holds socio-economic significance, attracting tourists and elevating local economies.

The PSL not only redefines Pakistan’s image on the global stage but also serves as a testament to the nation’s unwavering passion for cricket. As the league continues to evolve, with innovations and prospects on the horizon, the PSL remains a symbol of excellence, unity, and the unbridled spirit of Pakistani cricket.

HBL PSL 9 Format:

A double round-robin structure governs play in the PSL. The top four teams in each group go on to the playoffs after playing each other twice. The playoffs follow the same format as the Indian Premier League, which is the Page playoff system.

Although the International Cricket Council adopted the league’s DRS method for Twenty20s, the league otherwise adheres to the IOC’s standards. A victory in the group stage is worth two points, a no-result is worth one, and a defeat is worth zero. If the score remains tied after each side has utilized their allotted number of overs, the match will be decided by a super over. The following factors are used to rank the teams in the group stage:

  • Higher number of points
  • If equal, better run rate
  • If equal, highest number of wins
  • If equal, fewest losses
  • If still equal, the results of head-to-head meeting

The winner of a play-off match is decided by a super over if the match ends in a draw. If the match cannot be resolved via the super over or ends in a tie, the match’s victor is determined by the club that achieved the highest league rank after the regular season.
