The chairman of the PSL mentioned that in the past, people accused him of trying to form a separate company to benefit himself because of his proposal. However, he clarified that those accusations were not true.

In 2016, the PCB approved a plan to revamp the PSL, which included establishing it as a separate entity with its own governing board. Then-PSL chairman Najam Sethi proposed registering the league as a private limited company, completely independent of the PCB.
Despite concerns raised by the then-PCB chairman Shahryar Khan about separating the PSL from the PCB, the governing board unanimously approved the proposal.

The implementation of the idea was delayed, and it did not materialize as planned.
