Islamabad United to sack all its staff amidst the COVID-19 pandemic
Ahmer Najeeb tweeted: “Islamabad United franchise sacked all his staff. This decision is taken due to the Covid-19 situation ( business issues). 2020 really sucks.
In short, twenty overs league so far has remained most successful only for the Islamabad United however, Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators have gained the title once. Karachi Kings, Multan Sultans, and the second most expensive franchise of PSL whose owner with zero haters most commonly popular by the name “Rana Saab”, Lahore Qalandars are yet to win a single title of the league.
It is to be noted that the tournament was delayed on the day of semi-finals due to the extension in Coronavirus fears. The date for PSL to be rescheduled has not been announced yet. It could completely be called-off due to the ongoing situation which is a mega loss for PCB and franchises of the PSL.
All six franchises are to suffer a major amount of loss along with PCB as high and sizeable profits were expected. A business doesn’t make a profit and generate revenues in its initial year, it took years to make it happen. PSL, being 5 years old, was assured of creating revenues.
Islamabad United franchise sacked all his staff. This decision is taken due to Covid-19 situation ( business issues).
