Who will give preference to IPL over PSL
The PCB chief believes that the market is favorable for us, but we will have to discuss it with the franchise owners for this. Because it’s a money game. When the cricket economy will increase in Pakistan, the country’s respect will increase. Because the main reason for that economy will be PSL. If we implement an auction model in Pakistan Super League then we have to increase purse. Then we will match the IPL. After that, we will see who will give preference to IPL after leaving PSL.
Aakash Chopra’s counterattack
Former India opener Aakash Chopra reacted to the statement of Rameez Raja, reacting to the statement. He insisted that even if there is an auction in the PSL, no player is going to be sold in the league for 16 crores, as the market dynamics will not allow this to happen. Last year, Rajasthan Royals bought South African all-rounder Chris Morris for Rs 16 crore.
The PCB chief further said, the markets are favorable for us, but we will sit with the franchise owners to discuss it. Because it’s a money game. He further said, when the economy of cricket in Pakistan will increase, then our respect will increase, the main driver of that financial economy will be the Pakistan Super League. If we bring PSL in the auction model and increase the purse, then I will put IPL in the bracket. After this, we will see again who will give preference to IPL over PSL.
