The two sides discussed the new commercial rights and its modalities, while reviewing the rights evaluation framework, the statement said.
Sources said that due to the weather in January-February, the seventh edition of PSL is more likely to be held in Karachi while the venue of UAE is also not ruled out.
The PSL edition has to be completed before February 15, before the Australian team’s scheduled tour, so the event can also be planned in the UAE.

It should be noted that 6 seasons of Pakistan Super League have been successfully completed. Season 6 of the PSL was postponed this year due to an increase in Corona cases, which was later completed in June last year.
