Approval of PCB to send first class cricketers of the country to the upcoming T-10 Indian owned league in Sharjah has generated a controversy, alleging PCB of surpassing the standard procedures and trying to sabotage Pakistan Super league (PSL) which is scheduled in next few months.
It is said that the Indian millionaire in UAE who has organized this series has no experience in cricket and secondly ICC also does not recognize this format. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has also been accused of giving favor to the Indian private party by sending first tier players while not a single player is coming from India.
There are many other aspects on which PCB has been held responsible for not following the legal suits created in the best interest of PCB, PSL and the country itself like sending players to a foreign league through voting and also open bidding on the players has not been observed.
Retired cricketers like Javed Miandad and Zaheer Khan have also showed their reservation on the decision of PCB and have instructed to look into the matter again before finalizing it, as PCB has only tweeted about it which also appeared in the list of charges against PCB (primarily by the PSL franchise owner) that initially it was made clear that PCB is not allowing but in the second meeting instead of voting PCB preferred to divulge their decision through tweet.
The story becomes more controversial by knowing the fact that only ARY network has been given the broadcasting rights of this series against Geo Super which normally takes the broadcasting rights. This fact lead us to think on the lines that this whole campaign against PCB might be an effort of personal vendetta by Jang Group against ARY group. So, defaming the series and making it controversial, they could make a significant cut in the viewership even if the series goes unstopped.
