Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Zaka Ashraf has said they have committed to a contract with Sri Lanka cricket, and both parties have agreed upon a bilateral agreement.

"I've had a telephone meeting with the President of the Sri Lankan Cricket Board and we have agreed upon a bilateral agreement that when the Sri Lankan Premier League occurs, Pakistani cricketers will take part and vice versa when the Pakistani League occurs. The documents relating to this agreement will be signed very soon," Pak Passion quoted Ashraf, as saying.

"Likewise our players have taken part in the Bangladesh Premier League and we will also be looking to sign an agreement with the Bangladesh Cricket Board for their players to take part in our competition. The agreement has to be bilateral rather than unilateral," he added.

"I'm hopeful that once the Pakistani League commences we will be able to attract players from all over the world to the tournament," Ashraf further said. (ANI)
