Pakistan vow to host PSL final in Lahore

Pakistani cricket officials have vowed to stage the final of their Twenty20 league in Lahore next month, despite a powerful Taliban suicide bomb blast which killed 13 people there this week.

The first two rounds of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) are being played in Dubai and Sharjah, but organisers had planned the March 5 final in the eastern Pakistani city, vowing "head of state security" for international players.

However multiple Taliban suicide attacks in Pakistan this week, including Monday's bomb in Lahore, put those plans in jeopardy.

"We are committed to hosting the final in Lahore as our people want it there and it will be a step towards reviving international cricket," PSL chairman Najam Sethi told AFP Thursday in Dubai.
