Addressing a press conference at National Stadium, Peshawar Zalmi captain Darren Sammy said that we are here to defend our title and we have planned a strategy to tackle the players of Islamabad United.
"Efforts were being made for full functioning of Lahore and Karachi stadiums so that domestic and worldwide cricket could be held in a congenial environment", he added. Islamabad United beat Peshawar United by three wickets, and lift the PSL trophy for the second time.

Amid security concerns, extra security measures coupled with special traffic plans have been taken in and outside the Stadium to avoid any untoward incident as apart from foreigner players, high profile personalities including Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Federal Ministers and leadership of mainstream political parties would also be present in the Final.
Completed in 1955, National Stadium's first match was a test match between Pakistan and India, the same year on February 26.
That was followed by three T20s against a World XI last September and the emotional return of Sri Lanka for one T20 in October, all in Lahore, with unprecedented security arrangements in place.

Sethi said West Indies team would come to Pakistan for playing series, adding that the people of "city of lights" (Karachi), would witness the revival of worldwide cricket.
Lahore Lahore hai and Karachi Karachi hai, and this guy said it.
The third edition of the PSL was launched last month with the addition of a sixth team, the Multan Sultans, more global stars, and hopeful fans eager to forget a spot-fixing scandal which tainted last year's event. Lahore first hosted the PSL final past year as well as three global Twenty20 matches against a World XI and one against Sri Lanka.
The Opposition Leader in Senate Sherry Rehman said that holding PSL final in Karachi has once again revived the glory of the city of lights.
