PSL Live Streaming Official Websites:

The website requires a subscription from the users to enable them to watch uninterrupted and HD live stream of all the matches of PSL 4. Whereas, cricket fanatics from Pakistan can watch PSL live on https://www.cricketgateway.pk/ free without any registration. The website is designed to not only provide streaming videos but enticing blogs that would cover matches and talk about strategies that could be followed by teams for victorious results. If you visit the website now, you would see some videos of the previous PSL edition. Once the event kicks off, the display will be cramped with PSL news and videos altogether so if you don’t want to watch the game on TV, this website should be your immediate alternate. Other websites that are officially authorized to telecast the matches are HBL Website that goes by the name psl-t20.com and PTV Sports official website: sports.ptv.com.pk. These websites have already started to share blogs and videos about the team’s news and expected squads. The traffic gets alarmingly high on these websites, therefore, the fans must keep with the other options. There are various websites that provide a live stream of PSL 4th edition’ matches however their delay and interrupt frequency cannot be guaranteed.

Unofficial websites:

The list is topped by Crictime. The website was able to facilitate its users in the previous editions of PSL as well with great success.  It runs equally well on all web browsers and proxy platforms. It also provides both; pre-match and post-match analysis of every game. The other website is Cricfree.com that has not only entertained the PSL viewers in the past but has also shown live streams from TV channels like Ten Sports, DSports and Willow TV. Mylivecricket.com is another platform where cricket fans can switch to in case of traffic on other websites, to enjoy the thrilling moments. CricHD  is one of the oldest live streaming websites. This webpage has provided live streams of almost every tournament and cricket series in the past. The list goes on with names like Webcric, Mobilecric, and Watchcric. These names must be kept in mind or scripted on notepads of the smartphones because you never know when you would feel the need to turn towards them.

PSL Mobile Apps:

The official sponsor partner of Pakistan Super League is Habib Bank Ltd and the extended popularity and outreach of the tournament would not have been possible without the support from HBL. To provide increased facilitation and ease of watching the event, HBL as always, has introduced the mobile app for smart mobile users. It does little more than just live streams of the matches. It will show you scores, results and news. In addition, you have the option to make your own fantasy team and play the fantasy league to win exciting prizes. The app will also showcase teams’ statistics and player’s profiles and discuss exclusive news on and off the ground; let it be the sizzling on-the-ground fights or any off-screen scandals. This app is easily available on Google Store. To make sure you have installed the correct app, here is a tip. The original app will contain three tabs on the Home Screen

  1. Watch Live: which will contain the live stream of all the matches.
  2.  Match Zone: which will take you to a screen that depicts the ball-to-ball commentary, scorecard and live score of the ongoing match. You can also view the current points table of all the teams here.
  3. Fantasy League wherefrom you can sign up to create your team, manage it, and look after the gained points.

PTV Sports Live HD mobile app is another option the fans can install in their phones for “emergency” purposes. This app was successfully utilized by thousands of Pakistan’s users in the last season who gave applauding comments about the quality and the streaming speed of the app. The size of the original app is 26 MB which must be taken into account because various fake apps have sprawled on the Play Store that will waste your time.

The last option for live streaming is Facebook. The fans can write keywords like “PSL live” or “PSL Live Streaming” on the search bar to find pages that would be streaming the current match. The delay of these streaming pages is not generally more than 3-5 balls but if you are willing to withstand the delay of the nail-biting PSL season 4, you would always use this option.
