An inaugural Twenty20 Pakistan Super League will be held in Qatar next year.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) says 40 foreign players from all test-playing countries, except India, have expressed an interest.

The tournament will take place from 4 to 24 February 2016 in Doha and will feature five teams playing for prize money of £64,350 ($1m).

It will take place in Qatar because of a lack of venues in Dubai, the home of Pakistan cricket since 2009.
