PSL 2017: Imran Khan, Javed Miandad oppose Lahore final

Monday, February 27, 2017

LAHORE: PTI Chairman and former captain Imran Khan on Monday voiced his strong opposition to holding the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Lahore. 

"God forbid, if any blast takes place in Lahore, there will be no cricket in Pakistan in the next 10 years," Khan said, in an exclusive chat with senior SAMAA's senior anchorperson Nadeem Malik, on Monday.

"This is madness considering the situation here" he said, referring to the series of bomb blasts which rocked Pakistan. "What's the point of holding the PSL final in Lahore? It isn't even an international match," he said.

"In my view, it is a very terrible idea. We want to hold this match by calling in army and blocking roads and there will be high security. This will not send a good message," he said.

Legendary cricketer Javed Miandad fully backed Imran Khan's stance on hosting the final in Lahore.

"I have been saying this for the last three days that there is need to hold the final in Lahore owing to security situation," Miandad said.

"This would be a great setback to Pakistan's cricket if anything happened during the final," he added.

The reactions from Khan and Miandad came shortly after Najam Sethi and Punjab authorities confirmed the holding of the PSL final in Lahore on March 5
