Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) governing body has given a nod to make Pakistan Super League (PSL) a separate entity under a new chairman, on Tuesday.

Express Tribune reported that the meeting took place in National Cricket Academy under the leadership of PCB boss, Shahryar Khan and was attended by the governing body.

Khan addressed a press conference after the meeting and revealed that PSL is all set to become a separate company.

“The governing board members have given approval to make PSL a separate company,” he said.

“After the development, the PSL will become independent from the PCB and will work separately. Discussions are under way to make a new secretariat and separate media department for the PSL,” he added.

The motive of making Pakistan Super League an independent company as per Najam Sethi was to keep the league away from PCB’s politics.

The industrialist, Arif Habib has joined the company as one of the directors.

The second edition of the league is to take place in UAE from February 9 to March 7, 2017. The final of this season is likely to take place in Lahore.
