Impacts on Education When PSL Comes Home

PSL Pakistan super league is on-trend now a day. PCB invites different players from different countries to play by investing in them to draw revenue for PCB. It is professional Ttwenty20 cricket where the cricket enthusiasts in Pakistan are excited. This league was established in 2015 September.  This game is played by six teams representing six cities of Pakistan with their Title Names like Lahore Qalandars, Peshawar Zalmi, Quetta Gladiators, Karachi Kings, Multan Sultans, and Islamabad United. Cricket is a passionate game among the public of Pakistan. The public gets crazy and Excitement is overwhelmed.

It is a great source of Entertainment and bringing foreign revenue to Pakistan. Annually more or less than 2.5 billion is earned by PCB through PSL Grand Event. Players of the team also earn handsome amounts from their sponsors. In a summary, PSL provides a great source of entertainment as well as revenue for the Pakistan Cricket Board. And ultimately increases Pakistan's Gross income and good behaviour towards the World. 

On the other hand, PSL is the event held during February and March every year. It is the time when all educational Institutes conduct their Final Term Exams to promote the students. Exams preparation and hard work on the study is mostly at their peak. It is the time when students need to show their whole term preparation for exams and to revise the whole course at once. Meanwhile, PSL, which runs in the minds of Youth and its excitement, gets on their mind. Consequently, the attention of the student is divided into two sectors. One is good grades and the other is PSL. . PSL series usually ends late at night; youth keeps an eye on Communication Medium providing information about the match. Shouts of the crowd on sixers and being out of a player make them forget of their exams intensity. They entirely ignore studies and become a part of the audience.

The majority of students don’t want to miss PSL Final and its live event especially if it is being conducted in their cities. Large screens are fixed on the roads; a crowd of youngsters is accumulated. They ignore their exam preparation and get indulged with the charm of the sixers. Ultimately results in a bad performance in their exams influencing their final result sheet.

Another issue is traffic load also rise during PSL Final Match. So many students arrive late and face complexities reaching their examination centers, especially those who have their paper in the second shift. 

PCB should maintain the dates of PSL so that it may not influence the educational condition of the students. No doubt PSL not second important to other activities but it should be organized at some other dates when students are not engaged in their final examination because it affects the annual performance of the students.
