Najam Sethi is scheduled to meet the Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah to discuss the preparations for hosting the matches of the Pakistan Super League in Karachi this time around.

Earlier, Sethi had announced that Karachi will host at least four matches in the next edition of PSL, expected to be held next year in February. If sources privy to the matter is to be believed in, Murad Ali Shah has assured the PCB chairman of full cooperation for hosting a few PSL matches in Karachi.

Sethi informed the chief minister the National Stadium will be renovated for the matches with the assistance of National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK).

Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister said Karachi is a peaceful city and worldwide cricket should be played in the city.

He reached Karachi on Tuesday night for holding high profile meeting.

The PCB is also negotiating with the Sri Lanka Cricket to hold a Twenty20 match in Lahore and until now there are positive reports from the other side.

Sethi also dismissed rumours that the Sri Lankan team was not coming to Pakistan for the T20 worldwide series' final to be played on October 29.

"Not only players, but SLC officials are also coming".

He highlighted that the PSL final in Lahore encouraged the World-XI team to undertake Pakistan tour, and the successful tour by the World XI team encouraged Sri Lanka on agreeing to visit Pakistan this month.

He added that a video briefing regarding security arrangements was provided by security experts to the International Cricket Council (ICC) in Auckland.

"Even the security experts said that they've never seen such foolproof security ever in the world", added the chairman PCB.
