Pakistan To Launch Premier League In March

Pakistan will launch its Premier League Twenty20 tournament in March as it bids to lure more international cricketers back to the country.

Touring sides have shunned Pakistan since a militant attack on Sri Lanka players in 2009 but last weekend an International World XI took on a Pakistan All Star team in two T20 games.

"We have decided to go ahead with the PL as this is the best time for us to bring back some international cricket to Pakistan," Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf told Reuters.

South African turned down a request from the PCB to adjust the dates for Pakistan's tour from January to March next year as the tour ends on March 24th, about the same time the Premier League is to be launched.
