The star-studded HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL) is set to conclude on a high note as all the seats for the February 23 final in Dubai are already sold for the 25,000-capacity stadium, according to league chairman Najam Sethi.

He made the announcement on his twitter account:

PSL in no danger of being outshone, believes Sethi

The PSL chairman has also invited Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and World Cup winning captain Imran Khan to watch the final but the duo are yet to confirm their attendance.
