Earlier, the PCB had decided to conduct the matches at Multan, Faisalabad, Peshawar, Lahore and Rawalpindi, but after failing to arrange the venues.
It was decided to conduct the first phase of the tournament at Rawalpindi and second phase including semifinals and final at Faisalabad. But due to ongoing census in Pakistan, Deputy Commissioners of Faisalabad and Rawalpindi had refused to provide security.
Same was the case with Rawalpindi, but the PCB managed to lure Rawalpindi Deputy Commissioner Talat Mehmood Gondal after a meeting with the DC at his office on Thursday.
