Sky will be broadcasting the 5th edition of PSL for fans in New Zealand, who were previously unable to watch the action live on TV. Pakistan Super League (PSL) has become a hugely successful brand throughout the globe. To add to its popularity and reach more audiences, a prominent broadcaster has decided to air the tournament for the first time since its inception in 2016.
The news was shared by Tanzil Khawaja, an Assistant Producer for Sky Cricket, on Twitter earlier today.
I'm 100% sure it won't be long before we see the #PSL on a mainstream UK channel.
