PCB initiates consultations to make PSL separate entity

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has initiated legal consultation to de-link the Pakistan Super League from itself by making it a separate entity, sources familiar with the matter said.
The board had approved an overhaul of the PSL back in November 2016, when then-PSL chairman Najam Sethi had prepared a draft proposing that the PSL be made a separate entity run by its own governing board. It was to be registered as a private limited company and run independently of the PCB.
Then-PCB chairman Shahryar Khan had expressed concerns about the separation of the PSL from the PCB, but he was part of the governing board that unanimously approved the proposal.
But the idea never really took off, suffering delays time and again.
The PCB, however, has started the discussions once again to separate the PSL from itself, and has instructed its legal department to draft a proposition detailing the process.
The fourth edition of PSL will commence from February 14th, 2019 in the UAE. The league will move to Pakistan for the last eight matches, with the final set to be held in Karachi on March 17th.
