Nafisa Kamal, who owns Comilla Victorians in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), has expressed her interest in purchasing a team in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Fahim Rahman, a journalist from Bangladesh, has reported that Nafisa is one of the individuals who are keen to acquire a franchise in the PSL.
Earlier this year in February, PCB management committee chairman, Najam Sethi, revealed that the PCB regime under Ramiz Raja and Ehsan Mani, had reached an agreement with the current six franchises, making it improbable that any new teams will be added to the PSL in the next two seasons.
“There is immense pressure to increase the number of teams in PSL, but unfortunately Ehsan Mani and Ramiz Raja made an agreement 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, and if a franchise suffers a loss, the PCB will take responsibility,” Sethi said.
“But there is a high demand to include two more teams, and it will be more successful with many people showing interest to be part of it. Let me tell you, even if there were 10 teams now, all of them would be sold due to the high demand," he added.
However, Sethi also recognized the valid concerns of the existing franchises, about potential revenue loss and the impact on the market saturation.
"There are a lot of comprehensions and concerns from the franchises regarding their revenues and how the market can take it or not. And for this, we have to sit and discuss because without them we can't move forward," Sethi said.
"They have to be part of the consultation process. But what I will say is this, so many people are interested to buy these two teams, and if the addition of these two teams is coming in the PSL, then there will be a win-win situation for all," he added.
