PSL franchises lash out at PCB over ‘double standards’
The Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises have reportedly lashed out at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over double standards in financial matters.
According to a website Cricket Pakistan, the franchises are not happy with the special treatment given to the Multan Sultans owner Ali Tareen by the PCB.
According to details, the Multan Sultans participated in PSL-4 without depositing the complete franchise fee, which is against league rules and regulations. After hearing this news, the other franchises owners were left fuming over PCB’s double standard.
The franchises are also of the opinion that the PCB should have publicly revealed the details about their agreement with the Sultans.
Mealwhile, Sultans owner Ali Tareen on Wednesday clarified his stance on the issue by stating that the team was bought close to the start of HBL PSL-4, which is why PCB asked them to pay a portion of the franchise fee upfront and the remainder after the tournament. He added that the franchise had already given cheques for the remaining amount to the PCB.
