Dean Jones reaches Lahore, all set for the PSL finale

Eight years and two days to the day after that attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in Lahore, cricket returns to Pakistan with the staging of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) in the 'City of Gardens'.

PSL chairman Najam Sethi says that at least four players from each team will be picked from a pool of around 60 foreign cricketers. The Nishtar Park compound has been protected by huge metal gates, and spectators will be able to enter the Gaddafi Stadium only after three layers of security checks, some of which take place at a two-kilometre protective perimeter around the venue. He said that Gladiators were favourite to win the final.

"I am sad that I will not be part of the Peshawar Zalmi team in the ultimate showdown against Quetta Gladiators as the final was a challenge for me", said Afridi while talking to APP.

Since then, the Pakistan cricket team have played their home matches in the UAE, as foreign teams have refused to travel to the country citing security reasons. The Airport & Police security were fantastic!

He said that cricket fans are reaching Lahore in large numbers just to witness the cricket stars in action.

Cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan is among a few former cricketers who have criticized the decision to hold the PSL final in Lahore.

"I really wanted to play the PSL final in Lahore, in front of my own people but there are certain things which are beyond our own control".

On Friday, the PCB announced a list of foreign players who have made a decision to travel to Pakistan despite the prevailing security issues in the country. He was unsure of how the world would react to playing in a stadium outside which roads are blocked and security is heavy.
