Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Najam Sethi has said that bringing PSL back to Pakistan and keep it here is a challenge, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday. 

Addressing the Customs Cricket Academy in Karachi, Najam Sethi said Punjab government had sent the board Rs800 million security bill whereas Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah said provincial government will not demand any money from the board. 

“When I told this to Punjab government, they also withdrawn their demand. Sethi said the PCB does not receive even a single penny from the government, however, it gives tax to government. 

Chairman of the PCB Management Committee Najam Sethi also inquired after the health of fast bowler Shahnawaz Dhani at the hospital. 

He also inquired about the healing of his wounds. He said players usually sustained such injuries while playing. He expressed hope that Dhani will be seen in action soon. 

Sethi, while talking to Dhani said, “Take care of yourself. You are an asset of the country”.

Shahnawaz Dhani thanked PCB Chairman Najam Sethi. 

Seth said he had decided to restore women cricket in Pakistan, apart from starting Women League. 

He said as the PCB announce to start women league, India and IPL also announced their women league. 

“We are going to launch women league this year. A few matches of women league will be played in the current PSL session,” he said.

The PCB Chairman said Muneeba Ali hit a superb century in World Cup. Muneeba’s century did not base on her physique but she did that using her brain and mind. Sethi said Muneeba’s weight would be less than 50 kilogram and to hit century is a work of brain and mind. He said he used to play cricket in childhood, but afterwards he got busy in studies. 

He said his mother used to say about him that his son’s complexion could go black due to playing cricket.
