PSL grabbing more eyeballs than any other league: Sethi

LAHORE: The Pakistan Super League has climbed the charts in every possible way and is grabbing more eyeballs than any other cricket league, even the IPL, according to PSL chairman Najam Sethi.
In an exclusive interview on Thursday morning to Sportstar, Sethi was more than elated at the performance of the Pakistan Super League and went so far as to say that the second edition of the cricketing league has been immensely popular and grabbed more eyeballs than the IPL.
“The PSL has climbed the charts in every way. It is now grossing more eyeballs than any other league, perhaps even the IPL,” he claimed.
Sethi also reiterated his stance and stated confidently that the two teams will play four foreign players of repute, come Sunday.
“Only two out of a dozen foreign players have pulled out. That’s not a big deal. We have a pull of 50 players ready to come to Lahore at just 24-hour notice. Come Sunday (March 5), the two teams will play four foreign players of repute as prescribed,” said the PSL chairman.
Najam Sethi also stated that the Pakistan Cricket Board, which was suffering from staggering losses owing to the Indian cricket team not playing with Pakistan, was mulling legal action against the BCCI.
BCCI and PCB had signed a MoU in 2014 to play six series between 2015 and 2023. However, the two countries have not played a series ever since owing to the Indian government not granting the clearance for their national team to play a series against Pakistan.
