    PSL 2023 | Pakistan will not improve! PSL franchise tied up with betting companies


    Feb 20, 2023

    Karachi: At least three franchises of the Pakistan Super League are flouting strict Islamic laws by promoting advertisements from offshore online betting companies.

    The franchises are prominently displaying advertisements of companies such as Xbet, Bazzibet and Melbet on their playing kit (back or front) while one of them has also signed a deal with a casino company.

    Betting and gambling in any form is banned in Pakistan but offshore online companies are using the domestic T20 tournament for promotion through surrogate advertising (not direct advertising).

    The Pakistan Cricket Board has remained tight-lipped on the issue, indicating that the franchise has the backing of the game’s governing body in the country. The brand name of PSL is also being used on several online websites with advertisements associated with these gambling and betting companies. (agency)
