PSL Prize Money $10 Million Dollors: PCB’s Scam or Goof up

I was speechless when a tweet from the official twitter handle of Paskistan Super League @thePSLt20 had rolled onto my wall. It said:

“Some huge surprizes revealed in @najamsethi’s speech: $10 million prize money for winner, for ech player to earn over $50,000.”
Pakistan Super League

I think there might have been some communication gap between Najam Sethi, the chairman of Pakistan Super League and Pakistan Cricket Board. The reason being the prize money for winning team at ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 was 3.97 million USD and the last IPL season offered a lump sum of 2.2 million USD. The fact that this tweet said this is only the winning team’s prize money was hard to believe that it was the correct figures.

The good thing is that they didn’t let this tweet sit on your twitter profile for long; nonetheless, it was foolish and embarrassing for PCB. Later on PCB cleared the rumors: the price money is $1 million dollars and their social media team respond quickly and removed the tweet.

From 2016 season, in IPL auction Pawan Negi was sold for 8.5 crore INR which was higher than one million dollar (seven crore). Otherwise, it was likely that he could have sponsored the Pakistan super league in the very next season.
