Like IPL, Pakistan Super League (PSL) is organized in Pakistan. Every 6 teams participate in this tournament which started in 2016 and 34 matches are played in the season. Pakistan cricket fans claim that PSL is a league equivalent to IPL. The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Rameez Raja, had also talked about competing with the IPL this year, but when it comes to media rights, the PSL seems far away from the IPL.
How much is the earning of PSL
The Pakistan Cricket Board sold the media rights for the 2022 and 2023 seasons of the league in December last year. The board received $24 million for two seasons. Its value in Indian currency at that time was about Rs 166 crore. That is, the PCB gets about Rs 83 crore from 34 matches of a season of PSL.
One match earns more than the entire season
BCCI earns from winning one match of IPL, PSL earns even less than that from entire season. The Pakistan Cricket Board earns only 2.5 crore Indian rupees per match from media rights. In the next 5 years, 410 matches will be played in IPL. There will be 74–74 matches in the 2023 and 2024 seasons. There are plans to hold 84-84 matches in 2025 and 2026. At the same time, a total of 94 matches will be played in IPL 2027.
