ICL: Indian Cricket League

Pakistan’s Cold League

Written by Commoner on December 17th, 2008   (48 views)

Pakistan has dumped its premier league because the foreign players have refused to come to Pakistan and the sponsors have refused to pay any handsome amount, and because the plight of the grounds and other facilities throughout country is in shambles and so the thing goes to cold storage.

The previous bosses of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had made plans to launch the Pakistan Premier League with a bang in the fall of 2009. But the current PCB officials have dumped the project in the cold storage because of multiple problems that includes the security situation in the country.

The cricket in Pakistan is plummeting fast with no matches and with no investment and with no participation of the world teams and the lack of interest of ICC. Pakistan have suffered major losses this year because of the cancellation of bilateral series against Australia and the postponement of the ICC Champions Trophy which was supposed to take place in Karachi and Lahore in September because of security issues.

In these testing times, PCB should try to be on active spree and hold the T20 league. A lucrative twenty20 spectacle similar to the star-studded Indian Premier League (IPL) could bail Pakistan cricket out of the current crisis.
