The PSL was introduced in 2016, and PSL 2022 was the seventh season of this league. There were a total of 34 games in the seventh edition. Because of COVID restrictions, all matches were held in Karachi and Lahore. And after the finals of the tournament, the PCB Chairman came up with an extraordinary figure. As quoted by Cricket Pakistan, Ramiz Raza said that this year was the best so far and the profit jumped to 71%. He also thanked the crowd and the fans for this great success. Ramiz said,
“There is no doubt that the HBL Pakistan Super League 7 has been a phenomenal success. And this is largely due to the fact that we had amazing crowds, both in Karachi and Lahore. In my professional career, I have never seen such charged up, overwhelming, enthusiastic, lively, and supportive crowds, particularly in Lahore”,

Coming back to the grand finale, it was the all-around effort of Professor Mohammad Hafeez who helped Lahore win the title. With the bat, he scored a crucial 69 runs off 46 balls, and with the ball, he took two wickets. And as usual, Shaheen was phenomenal with the ball, taking three wickets in the finals.
