PCB mulls holding PSL4 opening ceremony, matches in Pakistan

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is discussing the possibilities of holding next season’s Pakistan Super League’s (PSL) opening ceremony and some matches in Pakistan.

The issue was brought up in a recently-concluded PCB meeting in Lahore where PCB officials and PSL franchise representatives were present.

According to the details of the meeting, the PCB has held positive talks over holding some matches and the opening ceremony of next season’s PSL in Pakistan.

On this plan, it was also decided that players who are not willing to travel to Pakistan would not be drafted in the competition and those players who are willing to come to play in Pakistan, would not be given additional or compensational fees.

During the meeting, the franchises also submitted their complaints over the level of umpiring seen during the recently-concluded PSL3 and have asked the board to improve upon that in the next edition.

The PCB, meanwhile, suggested that the franchises should improve the bonuses of the players with recommendations of tax deductions even form the salaries of foreign players.
