LAHORE The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is reportedly mulling to launch a T20 cricket tournament in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on the lines of the much famous Indian Premier League (IPL) and the proposal has already been approved by President Asif Ali Zardari who is the PCBs chief patron. According to reports, the board had sent a proposal of starting a T20 tournament in association with Abdul Rehman Bukhatir-led Bukhatir group of companies. President Asif Zardari has given his consent to the proposal, reports said. The proposed league, named the Middle-east Cricket League (MCL), is likely to be launched in October and the matches would be played in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. Bukhatir has been associated with cricket for the past many years and is primarily known for his Cricketers Benefit Fund Series (CBFS) venture in Sharjah. The CBFS series was suspended in 2003 following a match-fixing scandal.
