On Dec 19, the younger Tareen took to Twitter to announce that the bid for the sixth franchise has been submitted.
Tareen went on to say, “I have made full efforts to retain the team in South Punjab.”
Last month, he had confirmed to media that he was interested in buying the franchise, which was previously known as Multan Sultans.
The PCB on November 10 this year had terminated the franchise agreement with Schon Properties for granting franchise rights of Multan Sultans after they failed to meet its financial obligations. Then, all rights of the team were reverted back to the PCB.
