Islamabad, Apr 5(ANI): Four companies have evinced interest in the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) initiative to launch an international Twenty20 league in the country.
A proposal to launch Pakistan Premier League (PPL) will be presented by the companies to the board next week.
"We have invited the companies to present us the plans. 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," The Daily Times quoted a PCB spokesperson, as saying.
The PCB official said that it is crucial for international players to play in the tournament to ensure its success.
"I can't say that we are sure whether to play in Pakistan or abroad. But the PCB has serious intention to hold the PPL. The situation definitely has improved and that is why the British Universities team is here in Pakistan," he added.
Pakistan has been unable to host international cricket tournaments following the terror attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in March 2009. (ANI)
