Pakistan Super League runs into trouble
The fate of the Pakistan Super League, which was supposed to take off in February 2016 seemed doubtful.
PCB chairman Shahryar Khan said that the competition was to be held in the UAE; however, the venues to be used were booked by the Masters Champions League during the time period that the PCB wanted.
There was talk of shifting the event to Qatar.

The Pakistan Super League is a T20 format cricket league that is the brainchild of PCB. It was supposed to start in 2013 but was postponed; in 2014, attempts were made to revive it, but failed.

PCB chairman voices doubts
Shahryar Khan expressed his doubts over whether the PSL would happen in 2016 either, since the chosen location had had to be abandoned.
Despite Qatar being discussed as an alternative, he felt that it had the disadvantage of having only one stadium of international quality available.
Khan seemed to prefer postponing it again, believing that something should be done well or not at all.

Doha maybe the venue
Talks took place over the weekend between PCB and the Qatar Cricket Association on the possibility of Qatar playing host to the inaugural PSL.
Gul Khan, head of the latter body, said that there was a 70% chance that Doha would host the tournament.
It was said that the final confirmation would only happen in September when PCB officials would return to Qatar.

Doha's a really great idea
Doha is a relatively unknown and new centre for hosting a cricket tournament; so hosting would definitely be good for Doha.
The tournament idea should be especially popular amongst Doha's large Asian community, comprising quite a number of Pakistanis.
If PCB were to confirm the decision, then Doha could go on to become a sporting hub and could even host Pakistan's outstation test matches.
Obscure? Not really
Doha has been hosting quite a few major sporting events. It will be hosting the Football World Cup 2022, the World Athletics Championships in 2019, and last year hosted the short-course World Swimming Championships.
