- Talks at early stage but county could feature in PSL next year
- PCB willing to waive the fee for entry to entice county
Middlesex look primed to make a tantalising move from hitting boundaries to crossing them, after entering discussions with the Pakistan Cricket Board about the possibility of having a team in the Pakistan Super League, the country’s high-profile domestic Twenty20 competition.
While discussions have so far been positive they remain in the preliminary stages, and there is no prospect of Middlesex being involved in this year’s competition which starts next month. The tournament runs between mid-February and late March, falling conveniently during English counties’ pre-season preparations, and should negotiations reach a successful conclusion could become part of Middlesex’s from 2024.
