Cricket-lovers bought all tickets of the opening match as cricket-mad nation rushed to e-ticketing company's website and purchased over 300,000 tickets for PSL Season 6.
The minimum price of the tickets is Rs2,000 and maximum is Rs5,000.
The inaugural match will be played between Quetta Gladiators and Karachi Kings at Karachi National Stadium on February 20. The sitting capacity of the National Stadium is 34,228.
Fans can also call Bookme helpline (03137786888) to book their tickets for which CNIC number and phone number will be mandatory. When the match ticket has been confirmed, the customer will be sent a token number on the registered phone so that the customer can make the payment at the closest Jazzcash/Easypaisa shop. Upon payment, the customer will receive an e-ticket code along with a Quick Response (QR) Code, which the customer can use to print the ticket or show the SMS at the entry gate on match day.
On the other hand, Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) former president Zubair Motiwala expressed dissatisfaction over traffic arrangements for National Stadium Karachi during PSL-6 matches.
Zubair Motiwala rejected PSL traffic management plan and demanded from PSL management that the match should not become a source of anguish for Karachiites. “Ambulances stuck for hours every day and there may be chances of loss of life,” Motiwala said.
He urged the Karachi administration to change the current traffic management plan and adopt some more workable strategy.
