The proprietor of Quetta Gladiators, Nadeem Umar, is advocating for the establishment of an independent board dedicated to the Pakistan Super League (PSL)

The owner of the Quetta Gladiators franchise in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Nadeem Umar, has called for the establishment of a dedicated board specifically for the PSL.

Nadeem Umar, who also serves as the President of the Regional Cricket Association, attended the final of the Inter-Department Cricket League. During the event, he presented a trophy and a cash prize of Rs 200,000 to Umar Associate, the captain of the winning team.

Expressing his views on the PSL, Nadeem Umar stated, “The chairman and structure of the Pakistan Super League should be entirely separate, with distinct operational methods, especially regarding the rights and sale of match rights.” He added, “We have almost 11 months of inactivity, lacking a comprehensive plan. Other leagues like the Indian Premier League (IPL) and numerous others have had separate board setups for an extended period.”

Nadeem Umar stressed that the PSL is the most influential brand in the country. However, he highlighted the need to engage in dialogue with the board for necessary improvements. He pointed out the unfairness of not representing Karachi and Lahore on the PCB Governing Board, emphasizing the importance of input from major cities in addressing the challenges of selecting a chairman and determining the role of the game.
