The National Stadium lit up on Sunday to welcome cricket’s homecoming to Pakistan’s biggest city, as thousands of fans flocked to the sold-out stadium in Karachi to witness the final match of Pakistan Super League 2018. People from all walks of life attended the much-hyped Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi match, after the two former champions qualified for the final after playoff matches at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium earlier this week.

Thousands of spectators arrived at National Stadium Karachi on a hot Sunday afternoon to witness the first major cricketing event in the port city in the last nine years. Nearly 32,000 will witness the showdown between Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United as they compete for the Pakistan Super League 2018 title, expected to begin around 8pm local time.
