LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has begun consultation with legal advisors to make the Pakistan Super League (PSL) a separate entity by detaching itself from the tournament, media reports emerged.
PSL overhaul was primarily initiated in November last year when then the PSL chief Najam Sethi prepared an initial draft proposing “that the PSL be made a separate entity run by its own governing board.”
Earlier, former PCB chief Shahryar Khan had expressed concerns about the delinking of the event from the cricketing body albeit he was part of the governing body that unanimously approved the proposal.
Suffering obstacles time and again, the idea never really succeeded.
The cricket governing body, however, has initiated the discussions once again to separate the league from itself and has also “instructed its legal department to draft a proposition detailing the process.”
The fourth edition of PSL will start from February 14, 2019, in the UAE. Last eight games will be played in Pakistan with final match due to be played in Karachi on March 17.
