Now the launch of another league in the country will surely create problems. KPL had a PSL like draft, and there are overseas as well as Pakistani Stars featuring in this tournament as well. The owners complained regarding the fact that the attention of fans will be divided between PSL and KPL, and hence it can also decrease the value of PSL.

Having difficulty in grabbing sponsors is another issue that the PSL Franchise owners raised. The owners asked PCB to secure Pakistan’s Premier T20 tournament, PSL. The PSL Franchise owners have drawn the attention of PCB towards this issue and have repeatedly asked the board to rethink this decision.

The draft of Kashmir Premier League happened on Saturday 3rd July 2021. All the six teams have completed their squads and the event is all set to begin from 6th August and will conclude on 16 August 2021. It is likely that the tournament will proceed as planned, and it will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds between PSL Franchise owners and the Pakistan Cricket Board.
