The chairman of Pakistan cricket Board Ehsan Mani has terminated Multan Sultan which was founded last year in 2017 due to a non-payment. The decision was taken in a Joint press release by the board on 10th November 2018. The owner further stated that the 2019 PSL will be conducted with the same number of matches as played before. The Multan franchise was sold at double the amount for which PCB had in 2015 sold the most valuable PSL team.

Multan Sultan purchased by Ali Tareen

The sixth team of Pakistan Super League Multan Multan, which was terminated by the PCB a few months ago is again in the field as it has been purchased by the young politician of PTI Ali Tareen today on 20th December 2018  in $5.21 million per annum. On Dec 19, the younger Tareen took to Twitter to declare that the bid for the sixth franchise has been submitted. Tareen went on to say, “I have made full efforts to retain the team in South Punjab.” He further added that “I want to buy the team for the fourth edition of PSL and for this reason I have had two to three meetings with Pakistan Cricket Board officials in Lahore”.
