PSL Chair Reveals Huge Change For League

March 16, 2022 by

The cash-richest tournament on the planet, the Indian Premier League, may soon face tough competition from the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

PSL chairman Ramiz Raja this week hinted at a radical rule change being in the pipeline, and a change that will help the league compete with the IPL.

The launch of the IPL back in 2008 ushered in a revolutionary time for the game of cricket. Suddenly, T20 leagues became the absolute talk of the town all over the world – all of which prompted global sporting leaders to launch their own T20 leagues and franchises. This surge in popularity also had a significant impact on NZ sports betting, as fans began placing more wagers on T20 matches and leagues, reflecting their growing interest in the fast-paced format.

Born from all of that include Australia’s Big Bash League, the Windies’ Caribbean Premier League, England’s The Hundred, and, of course, the Pakistan Super League.

But despite the birth of so many T20 leagues all over the world, the IPL has managed to retain its particular charm and big-money allure. Each year, the tournament attracts some of the biggest names in cricket to display their talent on a global stage.

The PSL, however, seems to be intent on upstaging the IPL, with Raja recently heard proposing a fundamental and far-reaching rule change meant to upset the apple cart and help it compete with the rival league.

According to Raja, in an attempt to attract the world’s best players, the plan is to change from a draft system to a player auction (bidding) system. He said this week that he intends to propose that a bidding system be implemented from next year.

Raja said T20 cricket is a game of money and one that should be fully capitalised on by more leagues than just one.
