Profits for PSL 2022 increase by 71 percent, the highest in history
Lahore Qalandars won the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 final by 42 runs over in-form Multan Sultans at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on February 27. The Qalandars won the summit clash for the second time after losing to Karachi Kings in the final of the 2020 edition by a five-wicket margin. The winning team received PKR 80 million in prize money, while the runners-up received PKR 32 million.
The seventh edition of the Pakistan Super League was held entirely in Pakistan, with Lahore and Karachi hosting all 34 matches. Only a day after the one-month tournament concluded, it was revealed that the PSL 2022 profits increased by 71 percent, the highest in the competition’s history since its inception in 2016. Ramiz Raja, Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), officially confirmed this.
“There is no doubt that the HBL Pakistan Super League 7 has been a phenomenal success and this is largely due to the fact that we had amazing crowds, both in Karachi and Lahore. In my professional career, I have never seen such charged up, overwhelming, enthusiastic, lively, and supportive crowds, particularly in Lahore”, said Ramiz Raja.
