The Pakistan’s very own version of T10 league is to face a delay since the window to hold the event was not available in the present year where the national cricket team is to visit England and Zimbabwe before reaching to United Arab Emirates for participating in the Asia Cup 2018.
Last year’s T10 cricket league was a hit in the UAE, where one of the owner’s of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise bought a team, Pakistan was intending to host an event of the same kind and pattern by the year end on their home grounds.
However, the national team of Pakistan has a fully packed schedule with one-off Test against Ireland and then two Test series against England in May.
Following that Pakistan would be visiting Zimbabwe for a tri-series which would also be including Australia.
Pakistan would then host England and Australia in UAE, hence a window to arrange the first-ever local cricket league has taken a postponement in the plans of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Najam Sethi—Chairman PCB who seemed pretty inspired by the idea, would now be meeting with the owners of the PSL franchises on the 30th of April for discussing the Pakistani variant of the T10 League.
A new title sponsor and the selling of TV rights would also be on the list of discussions in the mentioned meeting.
PCB received a lot of criticism for releasing players for representing franchises in the T10 cricket league.
It should be mentioned clearly here, that the Pakistan Super League after three successful editions, has attained new heights and has become a brand name and any other deal regarding the planned T10 League would be benefiting both the franchise owners and the cricket board financially.
