KARACHI -- Senior Sindh government officials in a meeting on Thursday said security arrangements for the Pakistan Super League's inaugural matches are fully in place while the beautification of the city and the National Stadium is under process.

Sindh Chief Secretary Mumtaz Ali Shah presided over the meeting at his office that was convened to discuss and finalise the arrangements for the matches of PSL-5 scheduled to begin in Karachi on Feb 20.

Commissioner Karachi Iftikhar Shallwani informed the meeting that he was in constant touch with the police, paramilitary Rangers and Pakistan Army as all security arrangements had been finalised while the city and the national stadium were being beautified.

The meeting discussed security and traffic plans, beautification of the city and other arrangements.

'It is a matter of great honour that the inaugural match of the PSL-5 is being played in Karachi,' Mumtaz Shah said, adding, the provincial government had always extended full cooperation to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as it had made excellent arrangements in the previous PSL tournament that the PCB had praised.
