PCB planning to hold PSL 2019 opening ceremony in Pakistan


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is mulling to hold opening ceremony of the flagship Pakistan Super League’s (PSL-2019) fourth installment in Pakistan.

PCB and all six franchises are also mulling to not draft those players who are not willing to travel to Pakistan. Furthermore, no extra compensation will be given to those players who will travel to Pakistan.

The owners—during the meeting in Lahore—also expressed concerns over poor level of umpiring. The officials of PCB stressed on franchises to hike the bonuses of the players.

A meeting of the PSL governing council was held in Lahore on Wednesday, attended by representatives of all six franchises and the Pakistan Cricket Board management.

According to sources, all franchisees unanimously vowed to support Najam Sethi to remain as PSL chairman for the next season.

“It was discussed and agreed upon that Najam Sethi should be supported to continue as head of PSL project for the upcoming season,” the sources said.

The council also agreed on representation of PSL franchises in various committees related to the affairs of the PSL.

“The members of the Governing Council reviewed various aspects of PSL 3 in great detail. It was unanimously decided to form committees comprising representatives of PCB and PSL franchises in order to monitor and oversee mutually agreed matters relating to the PSL going forward,” said a statement issued by the PSL secretariat.

PSL—since its inception back then in 2016—has emerged as one of the most successful and prominent franchise-based league in the word. The final of PSL-3 and two knock-out matches were played in Karachi and Lahore respectively.
