Four companies offer PCB for Pakistan Premier League

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmed has said that four international and national companies have offered PCB to organise Pakistan Premier League (PPL).


Talking to media on Wednesday, Ahmand said that the PCB was serious to organise domestic league, adding that the board have asked the companies to give presentation next week.

“We have invited the companies to present us the plans,” said Ahmed said.

“We are thrilled to see the initial response but we have to sit and look into the modalities and feasibility of having such an event in Pakistan involving foreign players.”

Ahmed said that international player participation was necessary for the success of such a competition. However, He added that participation of the international players would be decided later.

Pakistan has been unable to host international cricket since March 2009, when Sri Lanka’s team bus was attacked by terrorists.

“I can’t say that we are sure whether to play in Pakistan or abroad. But PCB has serious intention to hold the PPL.

“The situation definitely has improved and that is why the British Universities Charity XI team is here in Pakistan.”
