They want to see the big players in the league in action. But for that, they will have to increase the salary cap. At present, the teams do not seem ready for this. The board says that Pakistani cricketers get the highest compensation in PSL. Many players are playing in other leagues for much less. This time, due to other events, it is not easy for big names to come. Given the financial situation, do not increase the salary cap and maintain the 9.5 million per franchise of the previous edition, however, the PCB has rejected their request.
As the early editions, there will once again be a 1.2 million salary cap. Which was reduced in 2019 at the request of the franchisees. Sources, on the other hand, claimed that the franchise owners had written another letter to the cricket board yesterday asking them to reconsider the decision, adding that the board would pay a fee if any iconic player came for higher fees. Also, help the franchise. It is to be noted that Rameez Raja had suggested Players Auction. So far no major progress has been made in this regard.
