PSL 9 Double-Header Faces Potential Rain Threat

PSL 9 Double-Header Faces Potential Rain Threat

Over the weekend, the twin cities of Pakistan experienced rainfall, and there are concerns that the scheduled double-header matches for Saturday may be impacted by the wet weather. The Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi, where the Pakistan Super League season 9 games are set to take place, is at risk of facing disruptions due to scattered rains.

The ongoing downpour led to the cancellation of the practice sessions that were initially planned for Friday. The matches on Saturday involve Peshawar Zalmi against Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United against Quetta Gladiators. However, the current weather conditions pose a threat to the games, and if the showers persist, there is a likelihood of washouts.

The slim chances of the Saturday matches proceeding as planned are attributed to the weather forecast by the Pakistan Meteorological Department, which had predicted rain and thunderstorms in various areas, including Rawalpindi and Islamabad, until March 2.

These Saturday matches mark the first T20 league games to be held in Rawalpindi for the ongoing season, with Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi enjoying strong local support. Seven additional matches are scheduled in Pindi, with the finals scheduled to take place in Karachi.
