approval given by the governing body, it has been decided to transform
PSL into private limited company. However, he let it be known that PSL
would still work under the cricket board.
Shahryar Khan revealed on the occasion that Pakistan’s cricket board has
been a laughing stock for the world currently and that we will retain the

regional basis and participation of private schools would also be ensured in this regard.

performance in the recent series.

assignment for Pakistan cricket team.

While responding to a question on Pak-India cricket ties, Najam Sethi
was of the opinion that owing to the issue being a sensitive one, I won’t do
politics over the matter.

has affected a lot.
