As per the report, disagreement between PSL owners and PCB over scheduling clashes with IPL

There have been reports suggesting the PCB is considering holding the PSL alongside the IPL, but Pakistani franchises may not be on board.
The dream of PCB putting PSL on the same pedestal as the IPL might just be thwarted soon. For some time now, it has become clear that the Pakistani board wants to hold their marquee T20 tournament in the same months as the IPL. But now it seems that the PSL franchise owners aren’t really on the same page and have expressed their dissatisfaction.
As per the report, various teams have raised a few concerns in a joint letter, demanding a governing council address the issues. The letter, as per the report, talks about the concerns over the dates of the PSL, which is likely to be scheduled in April and May after the Champions Trophy 2025.
It looks like the team owners aren’t really convinced that clashing with the IPL will help them commercially. The letter also talks about the feasibility of holding four matches of the tournament outside Pakistan. Detailed costs for the same and the advantages of the move have also been asked.
If all this was not enough, the owners are worried about the inclusion of two new teams, which would reduce their central revenue pool and the schedule of the league. There is also alleged discontent among the owners about the PCB press release that talks about the franchises’ agreement with the board over various matters.
