The ongoing Indo-Pak conflict after 14 February 2019 militant attack in Jammu and Kashmir is really affecting both the nations. Where Pakistan is demanding for peace, India is showing Stubbornness unknowingly that this will affect both the countries financially as well as it will also cause a lot of collateral damage.
Amidst the ongoing situation, the worry for Pakistan nation is the PSL 2019 which is ongoing in UAE while its last 8 matches are to be held in Lahore and Karachi, the two major cities of Pakistan. But now everyone is asking just one question, Should PSL 2019 be held in Pakistan in the view of India’s unprovoked aggression against the country.
Situation about PSL in Pakistan
Pakistan Cricket has faced lots of problems after the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore. It took 10 long years for Pakistan Cricket Board to recover from the disgraceful attack and improve its Cricket. Pakistan Cricket Board struggled a lot to bring back the Cricket to the land of Pakistan. PSL proved a ray of light to bring the international players to the country because each PSL franchise has a number of foreign Players and the majority of them had agreed to visit Pakistan.
The situation with India was not expected when PSL started. Now the main question is that how many International players will agree to visit Pakistan for PSL despite the present situation. If no one agrees, will PSL be canceled?
Some people claimed that PSL will be canceled because no foreign player will agree to visit Pakistan or India in the present feud. However, on the other side, it goes without saying that in order to ensure the safety of the cricketers the matches which were scheduled for Pakistan will be held in UAE.
