Islamabad: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf has said the Pakistan Premier League is likely to start by October this year.

"Our plans were to start the league in the month of October this year. However this may have to be adjusted due to the Sialkot Stallions team taking part in the Champions League at that time," Ashraf said

"It is imperative that the players of Sialkot take part in the Pakistani Twenty over tournament and for that reason we will adjust the dates by a few days here and there. I`m hopeful that the tournament can still take place this year," he added.
