Ali Tareen, the owner of the sixth team in Pakistan Super League, has confirmed that his team will be named in matches as “Multan Sultans.”
Multan Sultans previously named in PSL 2018 under the ownership of Schon Group, but the ownership agreement was terminated earlier this year by the PCB after the owners’ failure in submitting franchise fee.
Tareen said, “When we bought the team, we aimed that it should be representing the entire South Punjab.”
He added “We asked lot of people to send their suggestions, initially Bahadurs and Malangs were the suggested title names for the team.”
According to Ali Tareen, when he and his team met people in South Punjab, everyone agreed that Multan Sultans was a good name and a change seemed needless.
“I personally liked Bahadurs and wanted to have it but people of South Punjab wanted Sultans so we respected it. So, I announce that our team will remain Multan Sultans and we will be representatives of South Punjab in the PSL.”
