LAHORE – Managing Director of Pakistan Super League (PSL) Salman Sarwar Butt Wednesday resigned from his post citing some personal reasons. A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official told this scribe that PCB Director General Javed Miandad has been appointed as an interim MD of the league. Talking to this scribe, Salman said it had been a wonderful experience working on the PSL project. “Before joining, I had intimated the PCB of my plans and commitments beyond April 2013 which would prevent me from working on future editions of the PSL. As the league is now most likely to be held after April, I will not be available to work further on this first edition. We have therefore mutually agreed that it would make sense to appoint a successor sooner rather than later. “This has been a difficult decision to make, but my personal and professional commitments would preclude me from carrying on. I would naturally be happy to provide all possible assistance to the PCB and the PSL even if I am not officially associated with the league and would remain an ardent ambassador of the PSL,” he added.  PCB chairman Chaudhry Zaka Ashraf said the PSL management team was currently working on creating an available time slot in the near future to organise the league and the PCB would make an announcement on new dates as soon as possible. “I am pleased with the efforts being put in by the entire PSL team and it is satisfying to note the progress that was made and the response that we have got on the PSL from various stakeholders.” Wishing Salman good luck for his future assignments, Zaka said: “Salman has provided invaluable services to the PSL and his dedication and commitment to the league will always be cherished. On behalf of the PCB, I wish him the best of luck in his future career.” Interim MD Miandad said: “I am pleased to lead the team until we appoint a new MD on a permanent basis to take the PSL forward. The PSL team recently shifted into new offices and is working with great enthusiasm on all aspects of the league.”
