PCB thoughtful about shifting PSL to Pakistan completely

Pakistan Cricket Board is considering the shifting of Pakistan Super League to Pakistan instead of organizing it in the United Arab Emirates, from next year.

"At some stage, we will have to take a risk and we are now seriously thinking about shifting the PSL fully to Pakistan. Karachi is ready, Multan is ready and we are preparing Rawalpindi and Peshawar," stated Chairman PCB Najam Sethi during an interview.

Mr Sethi further threw light on the possible upcoming conflict with Emirates Cricket Board over organizing the Afghanistan and Arab T20 cricket leagues in the United Arab Emirates.

"The Afghanistan league is being planned in January or October. Problem is if they have it in January it is just one month before our PSL. If they have it in Oct, we have our home series at that time in UAE," Sethi said.

"I have told them if there is a conflict with us than it is a possibility we will go elsewhere. I am going to Malaysia next month to see the stadiums and other facilities there," he further stated.

PCB chairman also discussed the possibility of holding the home series against Australia and New Zealand in Malaysia as the cost of matches would be cut off to half of the current expenses.

"As it is no one comes to watch the test matches and it is all a broadcasting game now. So we might try to organize the Australia and New Zealand series in Malaysia," PCB chairman said.
