PSL franchises reportedly threaten and blackmail PCB: Sources

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Pakistan Super league franchises have clashed with each other, sources have revealed.

PCB has reportedly declined Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchises’ demand to increase their share in the revenue.

The matter of income share came up during the PSL’s governing body meeting on Wednesday in Islamabad following the next edition’s drafts.

The meeting, chaired by the PCB chief Ehsan Mani, saw an intense exchange of verbal spat between the officials of the board and PSL team owners.

There came a moment when the franchise owners boycotted the meeting and were about to leave the room when Mani intervened to cool down the situation.

During the meeting, the owners kept repeating the mantra that they were facing losses due to limited share in the sponsorship deal and demanded an increase in revenue share.

As per some reports, a few PSL team owners have also threatened to quit the league if their demands were not met.
