Wasim Khan Comes Down Hard On Najam Sethi
Criticizing former PCB chairman i.e. Najam Sethi, Khan said, “[Najam] Sethi keeps on saying that we have ruined PSL but if you look at the model, prepared under previous regimes, it was never financially sustainable for the franchises for the first 10 years. We are working with the franchises on different models, in order to ensure that they generate more income. After six years, the franchises are yet to achieve profitability which is why our first priority is to make the model more sustainable.
“This is also the reason why adding more teams to PSL is not feasible right now. It is imperative that we make the league more sustainable for the franchises.”

“In January the weather in Karachi is decent and in early February we can shift the tournament to Punjab but we still need to do planning in this regard.”
