Islamabad: Within minutes of Punjab government decision of holding the Pakistan Super League final in Lahore under fool proof security on March 5, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan opposed the decision, terming it “madness”.

“God forbid, if any blast takes place in Lahore, there will be no cricket in Pakistan in the next 10 years,” he told Nadeem Malik of local electronic media channel.

“This is madness considering the situation here” he said, referring to the series of bomb blasts which rocked Pakistan. “What’s the point of holding the PSL final in Lahore? It isn’t even an international match.”
