The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) revealed that it would launch the official logo of its anticipated Twenty20 Super League on September 19. 

The decision on the venue for the tournament will be taken in another two weeks time, said a top official.

"We have two options either hold the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as planned in February in Doha or wait until April and host it in Dubai and other venues in the UAE," he said, while talking to Press Trust of India.

Although the officials had visited Dubai to discuss the use of the venues in that area due to the clash with Masters Championship Dubai did not remain a viable option.

"They have given us the option of hosting it in April. Our delegation also went to Qatar where their national Olympic committee and cricket association were very welcoming and keen to host the PSL.

"Qatar is staging major international events now but cricket has remained out of their calendar but now they want cricket as well and their officials assured us they would offer all cooperation and help to make the PSL a big success in Qatar," said the official.

"Their Olympic committee and cricket association also told us they have got government permission to have the PSL with us," he said.

The PCB official also lay to rest the worries of fans by saying that another deferment in the series will not be happening.

"It will definitely be held in either February or April next year and we have already started preparations and contrary to media reports we have got excellent response from companies and sponsors interested in buying the five franchises. We have got the broadcasters, producers, event managers also lined up. The response so far has been excellent and we will hopefully meet our financial targets.”

Jeans | 6 years ago | Reply I have suggestion for PCB to please change the format of each team. Every single team can not hold 2 or more players from the same country, by doing this each team has player from more than six countries. The basic idea is to involve more countries in each match this will definitely increase the fan following from each country.
