Lodhran (Staff Report): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Jahangir Tareen’s son Ali Khan Tareen has announced to bid for the sixth franchise of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
“If we win the rights to the sixth team, previously known as the Multan Sultans, we will continue with the same name,” Ali said.
“We are making sure that the team from South Punjab does not get out of our hands,” Ali said, adding, “We are working on cricket in South Punjab.”
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had terminated the franchise agreement of Multan Sultans after they failed to meet their financial obligations.
Following the termination of the contract, all rights in respect of the team were reverted back to the PCB.
