The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wants discussion with other cricket boards on the proposed dedicated two and half month window for IPL in ICC’s next FTP calendar as they feel it could impact international cricket.
Pakistan board’s reaction came a day after BCCI secretary Jay Shah told PTI that the Indian cricket board will be getting a “two and a half month window” for the Indian Premier League in ICC’s next FTP cycle starting from 2024 till 2031.
“The meeting will be held during the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in July and the matter will be discussed there,” a PCB source said.
The apex cricket body of Pakistan is happy with the money coming into cricket but they feel that allowing the BCCI to book the top international stars for more than two months could have an adverse effect on other leagues.
“Giving more time to IPL could have an adverse effect on other T20 tournaments. This has to be discussed among the cricket boards,” the PCB official added.
Pakistan players have not played in the cash-rich league after 2008. Many cricket experts the flow money into the league will eventually change the face of international cricket after 2023.
