DOHA, AUG 25: Football World Cup 2022 host Qatar is poised to move into the lucrative international Twenty20 cricket market as the venue for the inaugural Pakistan Super League, officials said Tuesday.
The head of the Qatar Cricket Association, Gul Khan told AFP there was a "70 percent" chance Doha would host the tournament, to be played in February 2016, following three days of talks with the senior members of the Pakistan CricketBoard (PCB) over the weekend.
PCB officials are expected to return to Qatar in early September when a final decision will be taken.
"We want some big international tournaments here," Khan told AFP. "This is a good experience for everybody. It's good for Qatar, it's good for cricket." He added that "big players, big names" would take part in the tournament.
The PCB is looking for a venue after its first choice of the United Arab Emirates gave priority to a separate tournament involving former players.
Details of the Super League tournament have yet to be finalised, said Khan, but there will be at least five teams.    AFP
