Ali Tareen to bid for sixth PSL team


LODHRAN: Disqualified Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Khan Tareen’s son Ali Khan Tareen has said that he will take part in the auction of sixth Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise in December.

While addressing a presser in Lodhran, he said that he wants to work for the promotion of cricket in much-deprived Southern Punjab.

Earlier, Tareen expressed his interest in the buy-off of the sixth PSL team; previously known as Multan Sultans and said that he is in contact with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials in this regard.

“I have completed the initial work for a tender for PSL 4,” Tareen was quoted as saying.

Players’ manager Imran Ahmed Khan said the other day, “The ownership of the sixth team will be decided through a tender, which will be released in the first week of December.”

“We are trying that the ownership rights of the sixth team are sold by next month,” Khan added.

PCB called off the agreement with Multan Sultans owner Schon Properties on November 10 after the later failed to meet the final obligations.

In a statement issued by the cricket governing body, it said that the mentioned team was unable to meet the financial agreements thence its membership was terminated.
