The Pakistan Super League (Urdu: پاکستان سپر لیگ‎) is a professional Twenty20 cricket league, founded by the Pakistan Cricket Board on September 9th, 2015. The league comprises six teams, with matches being held in February and March.

In the first season, matches were played in stadiums across the United Arab Emirates. In the second season, the league's final was held in Lahore, Pakistan. The following season, the league's playoffs and final were held in the Pakistani cities of Karachi and Lahore. In 2019, the last eight matches of the fourth season were played in Pakistan.

The entire PSL was held in Pakistan for the first time in 2020. However, the semi-finals, final, and closing ceremony were all cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
