LAHORE: The window for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 9 has been decided as February 8 to March 24, 2024, during a meeting of the Pakistan Super League Governing Council at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore. The meeting was chaired by Zaka Ashraf, Chairman of the PCB Management Committee.
According to a PCB press release, the upcoming ninth season will be played with six teams. No additional team will be added in the upcoming season. For the promotion and support of women’s cricket, the PCB will continue to explore opportunities for women’s league or exhibition matches during HBL PSL.
It was decided during the meeting that the PCB will continue to work closely with the franchises to explore alternative venues as a part of contingency planning.
In the meeting, the late Alamgir Tareen, former owner of Multan Sultans, was remembered in a heartfelt and respectful way and his contribution towards Pakistan cricket was praised. “He was known for this dedication, passion, and remarkable contributions to cricket and will be missed,” Zaka Ashraf said in the meeting.
A detailed discussion with respect to the organisation of the HBL PSL 9 including the digital, media rights and other commercial assets tender process also took place.
