After the ICC announced their new FTP, the PSL and IPL will clash in 2025
If everything goes according to plan, the Pakistan Super League (PSL) will clash with the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2025. Following the announcement of the ICC’s Future Tours Programme (FTP) for the 2023-2027 period, it is clear that Pakistan will not have a proper window to host the T20 tournament after hosting the Champions Trophy in 2025.
The PCB’s premier tournament is held in February and March, but with the Champions Trophy scheduled for early 2025, the board may have to move their tournament to March and April. In that case, the tournament will directly compete with the IPL. If they go ahead with it, the tournament is likely to suffer because the focus is usually entirely on the IPL.
It will be extremely difficult for them to host it later in the year, given their international schedule and the other T20 leagues that will be taking place around the world. Pakistan may be forced to hold the tournament again in March and April of 2025.
Both tournaments were on the verge of colliding in 2022. However, in order to avoid any conflict, Pakistan decided to host it in January and February.
