Pakistan Super League.

All domestic T20 tournaments

Pakistan Super League.

Kevin Pietersen, Tim, and Luke Wright are England players who are set to play in the PSL, with Chris Gayle and Lasith Malinga. It feels unexpected that international cricketers are going to play in Pakistan. Is this a gateway for full international cricket to return to the country?

I was under the impression that the PSL was to be played in the UAE. I can't imagine many top players being willing to go to Pakistan after there was a suicide bombing outside a ground during the Zimbabwe series.

From what I've read, the PSL will be staged in the UAE, and I reckon it will be a great success.

Don't tell the ECB though.

If they ask tell them it was a disaster and T20 is rubbish.

If it's the UAE, it's just a competition for tv really. I wonder if there's be more interest if it was an emirates cup, with teams representing that 'country', just with all the Pakistani players involved.

Just what cricket needs another T20 competition with many of the same stars participating. It's reminiscent of the Harlem Globetrotters.
Work expands to fill the time available, so why do today what can be put off until tomorrow.

Obviously there is a circuit for the usual suspects. But I guess each league has a core of players from the host country.

James Anderson and James Taylor have reportedly signed onto the Pakistan Super League roster.
