LAHORE – Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) management committee, Najam Sethi, has confirmed that the country’s domestic franchise league would henceforth be called Pakistan Super League-Nawaz (PSL-N).
Talking exclusively to The Dependent, Sethi said the name has been changed to better reflect the ground realities of both the country and its premier cricket league.
“The reason behind our success lies in our ability to evolve with time, which is what I see for the PSL as well, whose triumphs would continue under the new banner Pakistan Super League-Nawaz,” the management committee chairman told this scribe.
“We need to embrace what lies ahead for Pakistan – both on and off the pitch, especially since you can see how they are interconnected, right in front of you right now,” Sethi added.
“There are exciting times ahead!”
Sethi, however, clarified that the name change might not go ahead in time before the start of the eighth season of the PSL this month, and is likely to take place by 2024.
“I think when season 9 of the Pakistan Super League-Nawaz is underway, we would all have a better idea, and acceptance, for where we are all headed,” he maintained.
