Cricket fans across Pakistan can breathe a sigh of relief as the deadlock between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Punjab Government over financial costs for the remaining Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches has finally been resolved.
The controversy arose after the Punjab Government demanded that the PCB bear the costs of holding the remaining PSL matches in Rawalpindi and Lahore, citing COVID-19 protocols and other expenses. The PCB, on the other hand, argued that it was not responsible for these costs and could not bear the financial burden.
After several rounds of negotiations, former PCB Chairman Najam Sethi stepped in to mediate the issue and announced on social media that the deadlock had been resolved. He confirmed that the remaining PSL matches in Pindi and Lahore would continue as scheduled, much to the delight of cricket fans across the country.
This news has come as a welcome relief to PSL fans, who were eagerly awaiting the resumption of the tournament after its suspension due to COVID-19 earlier this year. The remaining matches promise to be exciting, with some of the biggest names in cricket set to take to the field.
The PCB has also expressed its gratitude to Najam Sethi for his efforts in resolving the issue and ensuring that the remaining PSL matches are held as planned. The board has assured fans that it is committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for all players and stakeholders involved in the tournament.
