Now in a bid to add more to its popularity and to reach a wider global audience, a very famous broadcaster has now decided to broadcast the whole tournament for the first time since the PSL started in 2016.
Sky is all set to broadcast the 5th edition and quite easily the biggest edition of PSL for fans in New Zealand. Fans in New Zealand were previously unable to watch the action live on TV. The news of this new initiative was shared by Tanzil Khawaja, an Assistant Producer for Sky Cricket, on Twitter earlier today. The official list of broadcasters for PSL 2020 is yet to be announced by the PCB.
The time difference between Pakistan and New Zealand may be a hurdle in getting a good viewership, however, if you are a die hard cricket fans, you’ll find a way, the matchds are scheduled at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm Pakistan Standard Time. For reference, the first match will begin at 10:00 pm in New Zealand, whereas the second match will air at 3:00 am and hence the issue.
