In what has been the latest development, it is learned that the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2025 is all set to clash with the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2025. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has looked at the April-May window to stage the tournament.

Pakistan Cricket Board has looked for a window between April 7 to May 20 to stage the PSL. This means that the tournament will be clashing with the Indian Premier League, which usually takes place in the same window. 

The development is happening because the 2025 Champions Trophy will be taking place in Pakistan in February-March, a window where PSL takes place. The decision was taken after the PCB had a meeting with the six PSL franchise owners.

This will be a great headache for the PSL teams because overseas players who play in both the leagues will be in a tough situation. Over the years, we have seen players preferring IPL over PSL and if this is the case, it will be a massive problem. 

Releasing the official statement, PCB stated: “Due to the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 being held in the traditional event window, the event window for the 2025 event will be April 7–May 20. Karachi, Lahore, Multan, and Rawalpindi to host matches in Pakistan with each side playing, at least, five matches on home ground.”

“The PCB will continue to explore additional venues. Four playoffs proposed to be staged at a neutral venue.”
