What is PSL?
Well, it is a special Cricket tournament which is played at state-level, between different Individual cricket team, from different cities of Pakistan, mainly sponsored by Habib Bank Limited (HBL).

Almost every person in our society is a fan of PSL matches and it has become a center of attention for lots of public in our society. It but is it good for our social lifestyle? Well, it can be both in my opinion. Like, everyone has his/her own opinion about this thing. Some people like it and. Even in a friends circle, it is not important that all persons support the same team, due to their individual choices, they may support different teams. and due to that, they may have several argue with each other.
Everyone is stuck to T.V in PSL season. Some, with friends group and some, with families who are interested in PSL matches. This can be good for socializing but, outdoor activities are being limited. The excessive amount of everything is not good for health. Just like that, excessive time of watching TV and being a fan of cricket is becoming an addiction for our People. We should avoid this addiction so that we can get some time for ourselves and to get a better life. That was all my opinion about this. What’s yours? Please let me know in comment box below. Feel free to share your opinion. Have a Safe n Healthy Life.
