Pakistan Super League (PSL) sixth franchise bid submission date has been moved from December 18th to December 19th. The date has been changed because of the Board of Governors meeting taking place on 18th.
On 19th and 20th, technical evaluation of bidders will be done while financial proposals will open on 20th.
The sixth team was formerly known as Multan Sultans which played the third edition of PSL. But just after a year, the owners of Multan Sultans failed to clear their annual dues and faced termination by Pakistan Cricket Board after giving many chances to clear payment.

This opened ways for new bidders to buy the team. According to PCB, 16 bidders have shown interest in buying the sixth team. Pakistan Tehreeke Insaaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen’s son Ali Tareen is also interested. Other than him, a renowned industrialist from Karachi also showed his interest in buying the sixth team. The ex-owners might also buy the team. The new owners can change the name of the team.
