Multan Sultans owner interested in investing in The Hundred

Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Multan Sultans’ co-owner Ali Tareen is reportedly interested in investing in a franchise in the inaugural edition of The Hundred. The competition, heralded by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) as their cash cow, was earlier postponed by a year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the ECB set to incur financial losses, they are pondering over the possibility of allowing overseas bids on their franchises. In this case, Tareen is looking forward to earning a stake in the Southern Brave team, which represents Hampshire.

“I’m a Hampshire boy who loves Hampshire cricket. I see it as a way to benefit the counties, so they get more money. If someone with no connections owns aside, they wouldn’t give a hoot about counties. Why would they? Someone like me, who’s an actual Hampshire fan, sees the real attraction of external investment as my opportunity to help Hampshire,” Tareen told a major cricket publication.
