Lauding the role of franchises and their owners, the PCB chairman said: “The franchises have an important role in making the PSL a brand and one of the world’s best cricket leagues. “We are highly grateful to all the franchises and their owners for putting faith in us and going ahead with us in a positive manner, which will help in further popularising the league,” he said.
