Airtel American Premier League signs Pak stars

Uncertain about their future with the unofficial Indian Cricket League (ICL), seven Pakistani cricketers, including former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, have signed up to play for the American Premier League (APL) in its inaugural season later this year.

According to sources, Inzamam and six more national cricketers - Abdul Razzaq, Rana Naved-ul-Hasan, Imran Farhat, Imran Nazir and Saqlain Mushtaq - will be featuring in the APL - a Twenty20 spectacle to be held on the pattern of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Inzamam led Lahore Badshahs - a team made up of Pakistani cricketers - in the ICL in 2007 and 2008.

cranked up again with plans for an American Premier League (APL) on the lines of the ongoing Indian Premier League

If that happens, the game could even have a new celebrity fan - US President Barack Obama. On a visit to Trinidad this past weekend, Obama wielded the bat under the tutelage of the great Brian Lara, essaying a left-handed cover drive after dropping in at the stadium named after the country's national hero.

The US President, who is a southpaw, is an avid sports buff who keenly follows basketball and baseball and tunes into sports channels at every opportunity. He's also known to engage in an occasional pick-up game himself, often with a competitive edge. Tiger Woods was a guest at the White House this week.

Obama's introduction to cricket came even as an American entrepreneur unveiled plans over the weekend to launch a Twenty20 tournament in New York in October on the lines of the IPL. Promoted by Jay Mir, president and CEO of American Sports And Entertainment Group Inc, the ‘American Premier League’ will have six teams including Premium Pakistan, Premium India, Premium West Indies, Premium World and Premium America.
