Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) management committee chairman Najam Sethi revealed that due to enormous demand, the number of clubs in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) could be extended to ten.
“There is immense pressure to increase the number of teams in PSL, but unfortunately, Ehsan Mani and Ramiz Raja agreed with the franchises that only six teams will play in the next two years. However, it was an eight-team project. We have to convince the franchises to include two more teams. No one will lose anything; if a franchise suffers a loss, the PCB will take responsibility,” Najam Sethi said.
Najam Sethi further continued that they were in high demand for the team and reckoned that if they are ten teams introduced they would be easily picked as they had an overwhelming interest to own the franchise in the league.
