Islamabad: Four companies have shown interest in the PCB's initiative to launch an international Twenty20 league in Pakistan. 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," PCB chief operating officer, Subhan Ahmed told ESPNcricinfo. "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, Pakistan has been unable to host international cricket since March 2009, when Sri Lanka's team bus was attacked by terrorists.
