PCB summons meeting with franchise owners to deliberate over matter today
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has summoned an emergency meeting with the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises to deliberate over shifting the Lahore and Rawalpindi matches of the league to Karachi in order to save money, sources said.
The key huddle will be held in Lahore today, sources told Geo News.
According to resources, the board is thinking of shifting the PSL 8’s Punjab leg to Karachi after receiving a invoice of PKR500 million from Punjab’s provincial authorities.
The assets stated the reasoning at the back of this deliberation is to shop money. According to resources, the Sindh government does not charge anything from the PCB to host PSL fits in Karachi.
The sources similarly claimed that the PCB has already paid PKR50 million for meals and liquids to the Punjab authorities. However, the provincial government is pressurising PCB to pay the closing PKR450 million on the earliest.
Originally, Karachi is to host 9 suits, with its remaining scheduled recreation of this season on February 26. Home side Karachi Kings will take on Multan Sultans inside the remaining scheduled encounter at the National Bank Cricket Arena.
As in step with the unique time table, the last matches of the league could shift to Lahore and Rawalpindi from February 26 onwards.
Rawalpindi has been given the web hosting rights of maximum (eleven) matches this season. The playoffs and final of the event might be played at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. The very last could be performed on March 19.
